Taken from the Dome Drivers Manual : "From the first tree left of Gravitron, climb sustained 5.10 crystals past the overlap and the first two bolts. The crux is the 25-foot bulge leading to the third bolt. This section starts with steep edging and ends with small crystals. Climb left to the forth bolt and then embark on a 45-foot run-out of 5.9+ to the fifth bolt. Just above is a double-bolt belay with a ledge stance."

This is an outstanding pitch that really isn't as scary as the description sounds. It's all there, however, a cool head is necessary to avoid a very nasty fall!

An added bonus is the opportunity to toprope the very serious Gravitron from the anchor.


Down and right from Ripple by a large tree with a bolt over the overlap. Just left of the prominent black streak containing Gravitron.


All you need is about 8 draws and ample huevos! A #2 Camalot will protect the clip of the initial bolt.
