The Super Dome is the ultra-proud formation dominating the north Wonderland skyline. The walk is long. The routes tend to be difficult, marginally protected or a combination of the two. Standouts here include The Last Unicorn (5.11a) an old-school runout adventure and Warpath (5.12c) a modern two-pitch sport climb in a wilderness setting. Bighorn sightings are possible as it is near Willow Hole.

Getting There 

Hike the 3.5 miles to Willow Hole via the Boyscout Trail and on up the slabs to the base. Hiking time for the approach is a solid 1.5 - 2 hours without any dilly dallying!

This route ascends the middle of the impressive south face of The Super Dome; taking the obvious line of weakness. Start just left of a left facing corner-block (Bleed Proof), behind a small oak tree. This route sports new 3/8 inch bolts and sporty climbing on both pitches. But for climbers solid at the grade, the line definitely beckons......[more]   Browse More Classics in California
