This route is on the Back Porch, which is actually another small dome about 3 minutes walk behind Little Half Dome, around right.

The climbing is easy, but getting gear in, especially low, is tricky. Bring a nut tool to clean the crack.


When you first see the dome, you'll see a big crack that starts off the ground with a tree in it. The routes are left of this feature.


All trad, small to medium wires and cams. Double anchor bolts on top.

I cleaned this and put the anchors in years ago for something for my daugter to climb (on TR). The gear is there but tricky (i.e. sideways stoppers, small cams). I thought it was harder than 5.4 at the one move out of the crack near the anchors, but this is also one of the better protected moves (#2 Camalot if I remember), so it shouldn't matter. Nov 26, 2012

This is a fun route, but I questioned the quality of most of my gear. I placed gear from a 00 C3 to a #3 Camalot. I placed a #2 Camalot at the end as well. Oct 23, 2013
