Our high school x-country coach took nine of us runners to Tuolumne for nine days of conditioning. The first evening there we scrambled to the top of Lembert Dome. The coach basically called us a bunch of pussies as we nervously made a night descent. I have been in love with Tuolumne ever since.

Hiked up with friends, Mark, Natasha and Brian from Tuolomne Village. Short and easy with nice views up top. Looped around back to Lembert Dome parking lot and caught the shuttle back to T-V and my truck. Watched robins pluck frogs and tadpoles from a small pond on the north side on the way back. Those guys are vicious!

We arrived in Tuolumne Meadows in the afternoon and had some time to kill so we decided to do a quick scramble. It was a fun adventure for the day and got us in the frame of mind for our climbing course in the following days at the Yosemite Mountaineering School. We had great views at the top.

Scrambled up this route in lieu of the standard hike up. It would have been fun to do one of the technical multipitch routes on the west face, but I didn't bring my gear this trip. The scramble was a lot of fun. Downclimbing the 5.2 move with 100 feet of fall exposure tested my nerves a bit, but all was good after I secured two bomber hand jambs.

I can't wait to visit Yosemite again. Next time, the rack is definately coming along!

Great hike w/my gf - superb effort-to-view ratio. Fun side-trip to Dog Dome to the southeast. More ramblings and pics are here.

This was my first class 3 route, a walk up I did in my tennis shoes (that tend to fall off as I climb). Dad didn't think it was so easy and kept making me wait for him to scout out the route before I could climb up. Then he'd climb right behind me, probably so he wouldn't get lost. When my shoes came off Dad had to catch them before they tumbled down the slopes. I couldn't climb in my socks, so I had to wait for Dad to give me my shoes back. Dad kept telling me to slow down and be careful, and he looked a bit frightened when I turned around and sat down on the rock. He kept using words like friction and finger pockets, and saying things "I wonder if a ranger will cite me for this" and "your mother would kill me." But I thought it was fun, at least until I got tired. Dad made a deal with me, and I got a hot dog at the Meadow Grill as a reward for getting to the top. I thought it was a good trade.

Good views of Tuolumne Meadows and the Sierra crest from the bare granite summit.

Eric TiptonRoute Climbed: "Cry in Time Again" 5.9 Date Climbed: July, 1994  Sucess!
Climbed this 7 pitch route with my son Luke. This was one of my first leads without a skilled leader in the party, but we made it to the top anyways. Good route,a bit runout, finished the last pitch 15' to the right of the origional route on a 4 bolt face. (ROWCC trip.)

bearbnzRoute Climbed: Lunar Leap Date Climbed: Summer 1991


One of the slab routes in Tuolumne that isn't too run out, but the bolts are rusty quarter-inchers, and the hangars are homemade, with a mix of aluminum angle stock and steel angle. The first pitch is easier than 5.9, and the crux move is leaving the belay ledge, a very commiting mantle onto a steep slab, this move mayhap coining the name 'Lunar Leap'

Also up the trail and short scramble to the summit with my boys in 2006 when they were 9 & 7 & 7.

Also July 19, 2009 via Northwest Books.

1983. My first ever lead at Tuolumne Meadows with a crowd of people from LA. Great, smooth, well protected friction lead.

A fun short hike to great views. While driving through Yosemite, traffic started backing up inside the park so instead of waiting in my car in gridlock I parked and tagged the summits of Lembert and Dog Domes. I had no idea where I was going but route-finding wasn't difficult. Since it was in the evening and most people were leaving, I was lucky enough to get both domes to myself. Got some great views of sunset over Tuolumne including my first view of Cathedral Peak. This great profile view fired my desire to climb Cathedral which I would do 2 years later. Dog Dome has some weird boulders on it that look like they were pushed up by people with too much time on their hands. To think a glacier had deposited them there is a little strange. This is also when I learned that hiking up easy granite slabs in Tevas without socks isn't so good for your feet!

I'd definately like to come back to do some of the technical routes and visiting this area in the winter would be truly sublime! Too bad they don't allow snowmobiles - just kidding!
