This Formation lies about 350 yards north of Oz Rock and No Place Like Dome area. Over a dozen routes have been done on this crag ranging from 5.7 to 5.11.

Getting There 

The quickest approach is to take the steep drainage to the right of the wash into No Place Like Dome. This leads to the northeast face. You can also follow the right-hand wash from No Place Like Dome Area.

Many years ago...perhaps around 1997...I put up three routes on this dome. As I recall, one was trad/sport and the others were sport. One of the sport routes was really good and went at something like 10d or 11a. I will post them when I can figure out what side they were on.

My recollection is there are just two routes to the right of "If I Were King" (5.11b TR) high on the northwest face of the rock.

Dorothy Does Josh (5.10a) 4 bolts to chains is the left route and Trembling Toto's (5.10d) 4 bolts, medium cam to shared chains is the right route.
