Hamilton Dome Rock Climbing
|Always check road conditions and peregrine closures MORE INFO >>>|
An awesome heap of rock, smack in the middle of the wild Sierra.
Approach from the biggest waterfall below the smaller Hamilton Lake. Descend south and through some brush to cross the creek below the falls. Emerge into talus and scree and gullies. Traverse this to the base of a prominent gully splitting the ridge that bounds the east side of the bowl east of Hamilton Dome. Scramble up the gully to its top, and traverse across the bowl to Hamilton Dome. Allow 2-3 hours from the campsites at Hamilton Lake.
