This dome on the hilltop of mounds on the West Seminoe mtns is visible north of a major NE-SW 2 track. The mound's south face near the east corner has some darker buff face holds[crystals] that make for one of the few face climbs on these upper domes.


the route is on the SE corner of the dome as shown in Map 3.

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.

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.
