A friend and I did a trad route on the left side of the largest dome back in 2007. I was attacked by a male peregrine falcon when I was 20 feet from the summit - had to retreat and take another line to the top. The bird had us pinned under an overhang for at least 15 minutes - very cool. The eyrie moves from year to year so be aware if you are there in late spring or early summer. Watch out for the rattlesnakes and poison ivy too. Feb 29, 2016
Wish I was sticking around to help finish what was started at Seminoe but I just relocated. Keep exploring, there are some fabulous walls on the main domes below the ridgetop road further east on top of the ridge. Jun 2, 2014
