All the East side routes are closed. Details
DescriptionTraverse below the tower to a steep scree gully on the north of the Dome. Cross the scree and begin on a shady face. Move up and then left onto the arete. Follow the arete/ridge up to a small ledge. The route is a bit contrived to this point as you can step right onto grassy slopes. But from the small ledge it is all rock scrambling to the summit.
Bear left near the top for maximum fun.
Many variations exist, but this route follows and obvious feature.
LocationFrom the lot below the start of the Funicular Route, walk a few yards north along the road toward the tunnel. Take a cabled road which eventually passes an obscure structure in a gully. Continue to a saddle, then beyond across an old dam. Head up the next ridge, aiming for the radio tower. You'll be able to see the dome to the left of the tower complex.
Look for a distinct low angle arete just left of a gully which is just left of one of the concrete anchors of the tower.
Begin in a scree gully just east of the concrete block.
