Description

This is a fun romp up to the top of the Meadow Dome. Pretty casual, it was one of the first new routes to go in at Staunton!

P1: 5.8+. Begin in the leftmost black streak on the Cascades Wall (just before a chimney formed by a tower). Follow this streak up until it is easy to step left into another groove. Build an anchor on the ledge or belay at two bolts on the left side of the ledge (bad pendulum potential for the second), 55'.

P2: 5.8+. Climb directly above the bolted belay anchor on the ridge past a couple small overlaps. Continue up on easier ground and belay at a tree on a ledge to the left of the ridge, 155',

P3: 5.5. The ridge pitch! This has classic position and great stone. From the tree, climb down and right to gain a faint black streak. Follow the streak until you feel like stepping right to the ridge. Take this until you feel comfortable setting up a belay and scrambling to the top, 125'.

Location

Had a fun afternoon on this route today. The descent wasn't that apparent to us. We scrambled off to the right from the top and down and around to a gully right before a rock wall. We ended up rappelling off a tree to get back to the start of the route and our gear. Anyone have beta on this to share? Thanks! Oct 1, 2017

Sarah, from that anchor atop P1, you can make a short rap straight down to the anchor for the Babe With The Power. From there, it's a 35m rap to the ground. Glad you guys got down okay. Aug 19, 2017
Storm came in while finishing the first pitch. Rapped off the belay anchor rap rings to the left of the climb (start of P2), but our 70-m rope didn't touch the ground by a fair distance, and it's overhung, so I didn't know until I was most of the way down. Not sure what those rap rings are doing there. I climbed up and right to the block where this climb starts, and my partner rapped down with another group from Coleman Direct. Aug 19, 2017
