Fairview Dome and Lembert Dome
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
These are the 2 most popular domes in the Tuolumne Meadows area.
Fairview Dome was first climbed by John Muir:
"One of the best general views...is from the top of Fairview Dome...the summit is burnished and scored like the sides and base, the scratches and striae indicating that the mighty Tuolumne Glacier swept over it as if it were a mere boulder in the bottom of a channel...A few erratic boulders, nicely poised on it's crown, tell an interesting story. They came from the summit of peaks 12 miles away, drifting like chips on a frozen sea, and were stranded here when the top of the monument emerged from the ice."
