I went to the Soda Springs area before this hike and saw a deer being reflected perfectly in some water. I then followed the short trail to Lembert Dome where there were great views to be had. After I took the short walk to Dog Lake, which I liked as well.

The cougar might have got away, but the rest of the views from the top were fantastic, especially cathedral at dusk.

Did this one after dinner. Great views all around. Dana looked great with alpine glow. Almost got attacked by a cougar on top. Wish that would have worked out.

We got to hike Lembert Dome in daytime, and the ranger showed us the stars there at night. A very cool place.

Irene+ and I did this one on a weekend trip to Tuolumne, soon after I arrived in Fresno. Some committing moves, felt a bit hard for 5.6. Great summit with awesome views of the Meadows and an easy descent. We did some routes at the Bunny Slopes the same day.

broke my arm while running down the east slope when I was ten years old.. I would like to say that I am not as big of a klutz as I once was, but anyone who knows me would know that I was lying.

On the way up to the Sierra Challenge, took about 1 hr 15 mins, car-summit-car, with a nice rest on top.

Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2008


After coming off Cathedral, we were on our way to the store to buy some beer. But as we were pulling out of the Tuolumne Meadows Campground I was enthralled by a huge crack cutting up the Dome. It was very wide and straight until it takes a huge dogleg to the left. We abandoned the beer and went to the Dome's pullout to have a closer look. I grabbed my climbing shoes (just in case).

I walked up the steep and polished granite to the base of the crack. The last 15 feet were very slippery and required putting on the climbing shoes. From the base, the crack revealed itself to be a deep channel eroded by water run-off. It was about 2-3 feet wide and roughly resembled a giant irregular staircase. After a delicate mantle I was in the bottom of the crack. I wasn't totally committed but it did look easier to continue up than to go back down. So up I went.

The climbing in this crack is very unique. The center of the crack is slick from water run-off, the sides of the crack are much rougher and offer more fricion. I remember only one hold on the entire route - a one-finger pocket which is helpful at the crux. Otherwise I mantled with some useful knee bars and shoulder bars. Very fun climbing.

I arrived at the top of the Dome about 10 minutes before the sun set. It was serene. My partner, who scrambled up the slopes, met me on the summit. We walked off the slopes and got to the Meadows campstore by 9pm. It was already closed but after careful negotiations with the off-duty clerks, we walked out with a 6-pack!
