lookit all that snow! It'll be MONTHS before it's in. lots of skeets too...and solar radiation too...better to climb in a SPF 90 umbrella hat on the Great White Book...shady there..no snow...plenty of parking.

Bull Dozier is nice. From the ground:

The climbing is mostly bomber fingers and hands. My son the gym climber liebacked the whole thing and thought it was hard...

Edit: Right Vic - my brain slipping I guess. I was thinking TT = Tom Higgins

I on-sight free-soloed Cheeseburgers and Beer to get up to the ledge.

Easy, they said (from above) - except for the last bit...That's what I get for being the
lagger with no-one left below.

That one really scared me - but fortunately everyone was focused on Jersey-boy swearing his way up the next pitch as I pinched the nubbins through to greetings.

“I like climbing where the footholds are large enough for my size 12 feet.”

No wonder modern rock climbing shoes SUCK!!!


E, you free-soloed Scandalous Summer (5.7), not Cheeseburgers and Beer (5.8).

Ursula is an excellent route . . . I climbed it with uncle Mike Forkash BITD. A Tuolumne experience I'll never forget.

Just wanted to post a photo to clarify Dozier parking for those who may not know. The first edition of the Tuolumne SuperTopo lists Dozier parking as across from the Knobs bouldering area. The newer parking area is farther uphill (eastbound) and this is where the main Dozier trail starts. Please stick to the new Dozier trail so that we minimize impact along the approach. The old parking area may be more in line for those who top out and walk off of the dome, but it’s best to traverse along the base after topping out to head back to the main trail.

I don’t mean to “invite” more crowds; I just want climbers to stick to the main trail.

Thanks,

 Bryan

Bryan does like his geology. A few years ago I spent a day with him at Dozier, and heard some interesting stuff about the formation of crystals and such. I think we did "Cheeseburgers and Beer" - Bryan? If so, the name is reminiscent of "Burgers and Fries" at Squamish's Little Smoke Bluffs. Great stomachs think alike.

Looks like Brian likes beer as a real time belayer refreshment!

Thanks to Brian Law, Greg Barnes, George Ridley and several others for putting some of the new routes up.
Thanks to minerals for correcting the parking for the correct approach.
CMac please take note.

BullDozier is a fun little route. I say little because the 3 pitches go pretty fast. I always love the walk off the backside. Way better than rapping unless you're in a hurry to do more.

Greg: thanks for the corrections. I was going from (faulty) memory.

I recently did Cheeseburgers. Then from that ledge we did Tourettes, which was super fun. We were going to do one or more others up there but got snowed/rained off. Nice spot.

Thanks for the photo Bryan, we should get that on all the Dozier dome route beta pages. Best to have one good trail.

High Traverse, I just belayed a couple times - never drilled a bolt on Dozier. Credit for left side routes in vague chronological order should be to Jeff Dozier & friends (of course!), Grant, John, Blitzo, George, Bryan, Dave Lane, and others...

Seems like a thread worth resurrecting with my question...

Anyone been out the way of Dozier Dome who can tell me the condition of the rock around Errett Out/Bit by Bit? The taco guide says that it tends to be "a waterfall of snowmelt early in the season", but I'm hoping that dry season=dry face.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Here's a pic from a week and a half ago. Left side still getting wet.

We went up last weekend but got sidelined by snow on the approach trail and just didn't want to deal with it, did something else instead. But a party came up behind us and ended up doing Holdless Horror and said it was fine (we ran into them at the Mobil during dinner).

The rap for Bulldozier is under some snow still.

Thanks for the awesome pic, Fluoride (even though it wasn't quite what I was hoping to see).

We're not going up for another week and a half, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that it dries out enough by then. I'll be sure to have a back-up plan, though, just in case.

No problem. The obvious hiking trail has snow on it so you just need to hike through looking towards the dome and make your own path.

Hiking off the Dome looked okay as the waterfall is still far from the rap area if descending but the snowfield on that side of the Dome looked solid still. Would just have to hike below it to get back to the base. That would just be for any routes you wanted to top off on though.
