Description 

Some seriously runout groundfall potential sandbagged lines on the outside of the Grizzly Dome proper over the Feather River. Rare to see anyone over here, due to the old-school feel of the climbs, the age of bolts, and the exposure. Bring the ropegun, these climbs are 'entertaining' and really good.
NOTE: THE BASE OF ALL CLIMBS ARE UNDERWATER DURING HIGH WATER SPRING RUNOFF!

Getting There 

It has been said that you can walk from the Grizzly Dome parking lot, this is not only unverified, but dangerous and illegal.
To get to these climbs, drive through Grizzly Dome to the next ( Elephant) Dome. Just before entering the tunnel park on the wide area to the left. CAREFULLY walk back to the entrance to Grizzly Dome, where you can either rap down (anchors at road level) or downclimb easy fIfth to the base. NOTE: THE BASE OF ALL CLIMBS ARE UNDERWATER DURING HIGH WATER SPRING RUNOFF!

The FA is not rated PG13, but at 50' to the first bolt, even if it is only 5.5, one would think...but that was the old days when men were men, and climbers were...bold. Let's just call it PG13 and be warned. From the river, wander up through easy 5.5 to the first, old bolt to the rap station you used to get down. Either belay from here, or continue up in one long pitch past 2 more bolts.P1) 55' One old bolt, 5.5.P2) 85' 2 bolts older bolted anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
