Views south into the Kern were fantastic - would love to be here at sunset. Was interesting to see the Needles from this perspective. Easy access has taken its toll on the summit, though...

Since I was a very small child, I've been visiting Dome Rock. To date I've only walked up and scrambled about on some of the upper skirts. Hoping to try a technical route sometime soon.

fatdadVarious routes  Sucess!


Though I've done some of the technical routes like Just Lovely and Lightening's Hand, etc., I think my favorite ascent was the short hike up last summer with my 6 and 4 yr. old. We soaked in the view over a spread of Goldfish and juice boxes. What could be better?

KerstinClimbed lots of routes


I spent a lot of time here in the summers of 1985, '86 and '87. Anti-Jello Crack was my first hard lead in '85. Tree Route, Red Mushrooms and Last Dihedral were also favorites. Saucerful of Secrets scared the crap out of me, and I was following!

I came back here with the same partner in July of 1999 and did Tree Route--a very nostalgic experience.

Great route with a beautiful view. Brian B. Lead and it was so fun! The second pitch is especially wonderful.

Awesome day. Led my lovely wife and my bro up. Saw some friends. Met some people. At the Pondo ate a mondo burger washed down with a cold one and some tastey applie crisp!

FINALLY!!....I made it out to this place. So, this is what all the fuss is about : ) Nice view of the Needles! The fave during my stay: Arch Bitch Up. Soloed the Tree Route. Wish I had tried to do Anti-Jello. Maybe next time....

This remarkable dome features some of the best face climbing! Saucer full of Secrets has to be one of the best 5.10's around. Other favs include Welcome to Dome Rock, Between Nothingness and Eternity, and Pipe Dreams. I was fortunate to get in on a couple FA's here too including Save The Wails and About Face, along with Shortimer and some guy named Laeger...

Fabulously fun 3 pitch 5.6

Worth the day away from the Needles.

Highly recommended.

Watch the loose rock on the summit dome.

I love Dome Rock! One of my first climbing trips with Rob was to Dome Rock and I met Kris and Guy and Larry. It was a very manageable approach and the multi-pitch Tree Route was awesome for a newb. Good times!

I've climbed a few routes here, usually following Kris up some sick face but this one he made me do on my own. Loooong route with shadows for footholds! Came away with a bruised eye-brow and a liking for two 8mm ropes. Thanks Kris!
