Tony - yeah it was like the dome was plucked right out of the Meadows! Good mental training.

ruppell - nice! We were interested in the MMMR too, but will save it for another time -- and I'd hope the bolts aren't all leapers as the crux is above my grade.


More route beta would be welcome, but then again, we don't need more people knowing about this place ;)

Spent two days there back in 2007. Climbed Leona, The Vernacular, and Mark Mason Memorial. Can't help but feel relaxed out there, in the quiet, far from anyone.

Guidebook says 10c, 4 pitches are 9-,9,10a,10c. Mostly bolts at the cruxes if I remember right, very fun crystal pinching!

That photo is of the crux pitch anchor. It's the only thing in the route that doesn't have better bolts. The cruxes are vertical face climbing not slab and they are pretty well bolted. You can't quite yard through but it's safe. The first two slab pitches are cruiser. The last two pitches are money. We did the walk off/small rap as I'm a beg fan of actually going to the top of things you climb. You can rap it with doubles though. I thought the grade was spot on. Keep in mind though I could only really use my left hand. Basically get on it. You will have a blast.

Thanks for the bump. I'm enjoying these old threads. I remember being out there when that Manter Meadow fire started. We had to hustle to get out of there before being trapped.

Took forever to drive out due to waiting on fire crews coming up.

I always felt the domelands were the undiscovered jewel of Kali.

That must've been a nasty experience. Although it did make a nice wildflower bloom the next year.

If memory serves they were landing foot fire crews at Big Meadow with Helicopters at the same time they were bringing crews up the forest service road

still hunting domes

would packing in to Bart dome early June this year be a good idea. probably lots of water. Too much snow?

suggestions for routes 9 or under? Is aquaman actually a chimney?

domelands guide shows you rap, but sounds like its a nice walk off.

any new stuff to share?

thx southern sierra folks. :)
