Drug Dome is a steep crag by Tuolumne standards and its north face is home to the classics Oz and Gram, as well as some terrifying (but supposedly excellent) face climbs. There has been some recent development of some very hard lines there as well.

A trail into the woods leads to a talus field and the first unobstructed view of the intimidating north face -- the obvious corner and roof system of OZ and Gram looms above.

Probably in most years highway 120 is closed for the winter before this happens, but in 2011 the road re-opened in December and did not close for the rest of the year.The route started out fairly easy, and then steepened. Most seemed to belay on screws about 150' up on a bit of a ledge. The second pitch had a short vertical section, and i...[more] Browse More Classics in California
