Description

Awesome sport climb in the Middle Earth of Mission Gorge. Start far right of the first bolt. An easy traverse up/left leads to the first bolt. From there a difficult traverse left, then up to the second bolt. Mostly straight up from there. If you like crimper foot holds and almost nonexistent hand holds, this climb is for you. Foot sequence is important, so this climb will make you think! In my opinion the crux is all the way between clipping the first bolt and clipping the last bolt.

This climb is referred to by some as "Chrome Dome". You will know you are on this climb when you come across a name tag on the last bolt that says "Big Kahuna, 5.10D". Whatever you call it, it is a fun and safe climb to lead.

Location

Just across the canyon from Orange Sunshine. First climb on the next formation just uphill from The Overhangs.

Protection

Four bolts plus rap anchor.
