I'm in the process of adding these old/new routes into MP, but in the meantime if someone wants a new place to climb off hwy 50, here's the info. My wife and I have spent a bit of time rebolting this granite dome and putting up new routes:

Looks awesome! Do you have lat/long coordinates for parking? Can't wait to check it out. Thanks for your efforts! M.Morley

If you follow the directions in the "Beta" link, parking is at the end of the road. Basically take Ice House Road off hwy 50, Pickett Pen Road, take a right turn at 3.5 miles up broken pavement, then no more turns until the road ends at about 8.5 miles. The trail starts right there.

Actually you can do us all a service. The road ends in a decent parking area but with a very old fire pit in the middle. I've backed over it once accidently. If you get a chance maybe get rid of the firepit rocks for better parking.

Thanks! Ney

The routes have been added to Mountain Project:

All Locations > California > Tahoe Vicinity > Highway 50 Corridor

However it could be an administrator has to approve routes? I can see them but they don't show up on the count as a climb.
