Nickel Dome Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Upper and Lower Dream Canyon Modified from origin...
This particular smaller rock lies to the R of Wall of Winter Warmth (obvious taller crag in the area) and up & L of Chrome Dome. It is across the stream from Plotinus on a hillside with various enticing rocks. There at least 2 bolted lines from the 2000s here. This entry was made to help organize the Lower Dream Canyon area.
A. Eye Opener
, 11-, 1p, 60', bolts & gear.
B. Bob The Builder
, 11-, 1p, 60', bolts.
, 10-, 1p, 80', bolts.
D. King Slopers
, 11, 1p, bolts.
E. Engineering Marvel
, 11, 1p, 40', bolts.
Refer to directions noted in the Lower Dream Canyon. Park at Boulder Falls, hike up to the hole up & L of the Falls, drop down to water level. There are single bolts set for an exciting Tyrolean but it may be best to climb during low water of fall, winter, or early spring when you can hop across on boulders or wade more manageable currents. The access trail is faint and less obvious during greener times of the year.

On the far right side of the Nickel Dome is a square-cut overhang 15 feet of the ground. This is Engineering Marvel. Clip the first bolt and then the second. Avoid the block on the left and power up the overhang, make a hard move over the overhang and then a another one to gain a good hold and the end of the hard climbing. Fire up to a two-bolt anchor. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
