Description

This is a great left-facing corner just to the right of "The Shield". It is a nice climb to do after you walk off "The Dome" proper. The crack looks large, which it is, but through the crux you will have solid hand jams. If desired, you can continue up and right for a 5.5 second pitch, to the top of the feature, and then walk off to the right.

Location

The route is about 100 yards to the right, if looking at "The Shield".

Protection

The climb requires a full rack of singles from #0.3-6 Camalots, but don't hesitate to take doubles in the hand size. There are good rap anchors at the top of the corner.

Yup, description seems good from what I remember. We used to climb all over that part of the dome when weather was threatening. Y'all deserve the credit though, especially if you brushed it up a bit. We never cared enough to tell anyone. Nice pitch, I remember squeezing through the wide much to the chagrin of 'team heckle' down below. Sep 18, 2016

Dustin B., nice work! Thanks for the information, I had no idea it had been climbed. Do you agree with the description? Sep 17, 2016

We climbed this in '06 or '07, and it could have been done before.
