Cool Dome is a good destination for a hot day or a cool one. The south and west side is in the sun all day and has several good routes. On the left side of the face are 3 very good 5.9 routes. All have 5 bolts and are a tiny bit loose. Good climbing and position. Bedtime for Democracy (5.10b**) is on the right and is very good. The east side is in the shade all day and has a very good 5.9 bolted route (Stardust Memories**) on good varnish (for the most part). The two 5.10a cracks are to the right and are worth climbing. Too Cool has no mega-classics but Too Secret to Find is just up the gully. Names and FA info to appear in the new guide.

Getting There 

Start the approach as for Hidden Dome. The trail starts northeast and goes for approx. one mile before curving north when it reaches the base of the Too Secret Too Find area. If you are going to Too Cool Dome turn right and go up the gully which leads to the Too Secret Area. Go about halfway up and the Cool Dome is in the same gully and on the left.
