teamwhipper,
Cool to hear of your activity in that area. Being dome obsessed, I've often stared at topo maps and satellite images of the smaller domes in that area, wondering if they were still virgin. Never laid eyes on them in person, and it may be years before I visit. However, I'd love to know even just the names you called them.

 pt. 7734, I'm assuming this is the one in the picture by Klaus. Dome Baez?
 pt. 7669 just south of Starr King
 the longish south facing dome/wall just southeast of Starr King
 pt. 8312 quite a bit further south.
I'm sure there are more...

Feel free to email me, if preferred. The rock sounds similar to some of the best atop Shuteye Ridge.

Here's a prelim overlay of Dome Baez (we were too busy replacing bolts on Starr King to go to the base of this and locate the routes/bolts precisely):

The Lost Again topo is in the 1993 Reid "Big Walls" guidebook, too.
