Disaster Dome. Photo by Blitzo.
Located just north and slightly west of Punk Rock about 100-200 meters. The formation has a north summit with "Planetismal" 5.9 in the sun on the S.E. face. It is a straight in hand crack with a slight zig-zag near the top. On the south summit are "The Towering Inferno" 5.11c * and "The Poseidon Adventure" 5.11b *. These two are in the shade all day.
Walk north past Punk Rock in the main Wonderland wash. Turn west in the first wash system and look for a small (from that distance) formation with a corridor splitting it to the N.W. about 100-200 meters.
