I can't believe we don't have a dome thread on ST!!!!

I love domes because they are typically not hard, have good views from the summit, and there are lots of domes to climb in California.

There are many obvious ones to list, but I'd like to hear about and see some more remote and random domes.

Here is a good historical read

Edit: I'd be happy to include Trip reports and other links to domes here. Please comment on these awesome trip reports. :)

I've done the original route on Bald Rock Dome a couple of times T Hocking. I love that area.

Those routes are graduates of the Old School... mostly runnout, mostly on >2 decade old hardware.
