These three areas are all in close proximity to one another and are found near the top of a steep drainage that rises to the north of the main East Stronghold trail. As you're hiking up towards the Rockfellow Group, look to the right well after passing Stronghold Dome and you'll see the drainage; alternatively, it can be seen directly below/beneath Waterfall Dome which in turn has an obvious, low-angle, featured water streak on its southern aspect that leads almost directly down to the trail/main wash. The most obvious, and largest, of these formations is Worm Dome which is distinguishable by long roof systems and overlaps along its west face - it is very identifiable from high on the main trail near Waterfall Dome looking down and back to the North. The other formations sit just above Worm Dome at the top of the drainage.

Getting There 

A steep bushwhack up the gully works, but it is also easy and surprisingly brush free to scramble around the base (east side) of Waterfall Dome staying as high as possible before dropping down into the same gully.

This is a great line just right of, and sharing an anchor with, Mangas Coloradas. Although it doesn't climb the dramatic feature of that route, it is in many ways a better climb as it is more consistent at the grade and lacks the "crouton filter" start.Climb a few liebacks past the first couple bolts, then move slightly left and continue up the steep, featured face to a bolted anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
