Description 

The Rose Domes offer some interesting sport climbing as well as some trad climbing.

Getting There 

From Steamboat Springs, take US 40 east, to Rabbit Ears Pass. Look for Forest Service Road 100 [(aka Buffalo Park Rd. or CR-19)] to Buffalo Park. Turn right and follow FS-100 for a little over 9 miles. You'll see two distinct rock formations on the right side of the road. Pull out into the camp ground on the right and look for blue survey tape that will lead you to the main Rose Dome.

FYI: "... survey tape that will lead you to the main Rose Dome" - The main Rose Dome is actually what's called the "Other Rose Dome" on this site.
