This excellent climb goes up the right side of the Inauguron Dome. It starts out with some tricky moves on a slab up and left, and then goes up steeper rock past bolts, and angles right across the face to the bottom of a crack system. There is a 2 bolt belay station below the crack. Climb the crack to the top (5.8). This is the only climb on the Inauguron Dome which isn't R rated.


Right side of the Inauguron Dome


Lots of bolts on the first pitch , and med to large gear for the crack pitch.


A variation start can be done be taking a direct line to the second bolt. The rock for this start tends to be more solid, and may last longer than the already crumbling original start. This line could be taken from true ground level and add another 35' of climbing (albeit easy for most of it). This start is somewhere in the upper 5.10 range.

Edited to say: Route is long, sustained, and well protected. It would be interested how it clean up if it had lots of traffic.

What about the top rope to the right of Tony Carbonie....It looked quite good, and quite difficult from just eye-balling it.. Mar 27, 2012
