One of the largest formations in the City of Rocks, Steinfell's Dome, AKA Chinaman's Head, has 10 routes of length. The granite here is slabbier than most of City of Rocks granite but it still has features. The routes are on the East, South, and West faces.
Steinfell's Dome is east of Granite Mountain Peak, the highest peak on the ridge. From City of Rocks Road, take Circle Creek Overlook Road to it's end. Then take the trail that heads north, aiming for the obviously large formation of Steinfell's. When one reaches Steinfells, pick your face and take the soft trail to your climb.
