The Dakota Domes, Joshua Tree NP


The Dakota Domes are good from afar but far from good, with mostly grainy cracks to scrap up and lots of jumbled low-angle rock. Luckily some recent development in the area has unearthed a few gems which are both steeper and have better rock.

Getting There 

Approach directly from the road or cut over from the main Comic Book Area trail. The approach takes 5-10 minutes from the road.
