Six Toe rock is a smaller crag along the Castle Dome Trail before you reach the Dome. The Quality of rock and climbs are quite good and unlike many of the other climbs in the park routes follow good crack systems and have good protection. Most routes Finish below a notch just below the summit but it is possible to climb to the top.

Getting There 

Follow the Dome trail past the Indian Springs junction and keep an eye out for the rock on your left, Six Toe crack is visable from the trail.
