Fairview Dome, 5.9
The end of a 4 day climbing trip with Peter S up and down the Eastern Sierra...climbed in the morning, drove home to St. George in the afternoon (the back way=remote)...truly my favorite stretch of road anywhere, 2nd trip through that section of NV. Not a stellar climb from a climber's perspective (least interesting climbing of the trip), but worth doing if you don't have to deal with folks. Lucky for us, it rained the previous day, all day, and we had the entire dome to ourselves...that I can live with! After a big rain like that, both the first and second pitches are covered in drainage, but I have climbed much worse. If a bit of water delivers the route human free, I am all over that exchange.
Regular Route, 5.9, Six pitches + 5th class, Fairview Dome, Yosemite, 50 North American Classic.
