Psst...Dozier Dome totally sucks.
Seriously. long hike...develops trad climber calves. Nothing is overhanging...super slabby, giant knobs... way too easy for all you hard folk.
why bother when South Crack is right there?
Never mind the beer-chilling snow bank or the scenery..no parking within a mile of the crag.
What's up with that?
No 5.12's and you can barely hear the Harleys from up there.

sucks...

Stateley Pleasure Dome is the Sh#t, really...check it out.111!!!666.

edit; blue that ain't no Blitzo Route. ends on Blitzo's Balcony but...not that I'd hike all the way up there for knobby slab climbing..sucks..

Ah... Wade Icy, tongue firmly in cheek. Have to say though, dome climbing is my least favorite type of rock climbing. Maybe that's why I live in Colorado.

D...Colorado is awesome...much rather climb there than Dozier Dome...Parking is way better in Boulder Canyon...and the Mexican food is way more convenient. Everyone knows Colorado is the place to be. Why be lamin' on Dozier when you can be sending the rads in Eldo...?

Ps: Jim-got room on your floor for a couple dozen Cali Slab stars?

PS- Jim What's your favorite type of climbing? Certainly not available on Dozier Dome! Might try Stately or The Knobs though.

Blue..sounds like you need to move to Colorado111!!!666.

in the meantime...wanna go craggin @ the Castle? I teach/bend young minds to the radical left in Berkeley at night but days are free to avoid politics in the Coast Range...I think we agree that BEER is OK, Climbing is OK...Okay?


Ursula is an old school route...not as convenient as newer action..don't bother...sucks in that gold polished giant knobs too easy too be seen on sort of way...666111!!!

As they say in one of my country's other official languages, c'est dommage - for the non-dome people. Somewhere I have some photos of Dozier - Minerals took me there a few years ago.

I always have room for recovering dome addicts, and you won't have to sleep on the floor. I like climbing where the footholds are large enough for my size 12 feet.

Thanks Jim..will our massive dome -sized calves fit?

Mighty has been there and can testify that Squamish slabs are far superior...and much more convenient.



Jim..see Golfer's Route @your peril.

What is the best & most scenic descent off of Dozier? (Also least terrifying would be helpful, but I'll take scenic).

Aren't "scenic" & "terrifying" synonymous?

And do beware when it is damp. Back when the routes to do on Dozier were Ursula and Tune Up this was the descent of choice. Now days all the helmet people seem to rap back down those slabs with those huge knobs.


Anyone here led Tune Up? It's a damn site more interesting the Erete Out!!!

Bull Dozier is a fun crack (2nd crack right of Holdless Horror). Lots of finger- and hand-sized crack and a mandatory move of 5-inch off-width. On HH you can easily face climb around the wide sections.
