We went there to do Zee Tree which is right what I can and wanted to do when Richard just 'felt it' and wanted to do Dike Route. He was cool as a cucumber, while I was stressed just belaying and watching him walking up these slik and extremely runout slabs.

As many other folks have stated, finding the start to Zee Tree is difficult. We found it after a half hour of probing. I lead pitches 1,2, and 5. The Prophet lead 3 and 4. That crux right off the bolted anchors on the 2nd pitch are certainly thought provoking!

Mind boggling views from the summit.

Beautiful dome, with incredible views. When we reached the top the weather was getting really stormy. I was happy to decend, but not before taking some incredible pictures.

Irene+ and I climbed this one on a weekend trip to Tuolumne, soon after I arrived in Fresno. We had some trouble finding the start of the route, since I thought it should be further to the right based on the photo in SuperTopo. We climbed some slabs, then saw another party on route, bailed, and got on the correct route. Fun climbing, sustained on the first 5.7 pitch. I got a big cam stuck on the last pitch, but managed to rap in and retrieve it.

One of my very first leads. Awesome climb that is well protected. Loved the LB portion at the top. I did not bring any cams large enough to use there, but it wasn't too bad. Would definitely repeat.

My foot was hurting a bit from the first four pitches of the day on Stately Pleasure Dome, but I swapped leads with Chris Gibson on Zee Tree, my second time on the route. Led 1st (5.7) and 3rd (?, 5.easy) pitches. Chris did the work on the 5.7 lieback this time.

Swapped leads with Susan Holl. Simul-soloed up to first bolts (4th class). I led the first pitch (5.7 friction), then we swapped leads on some easy stuff, and finally I led the last pitch (5.7 lieback - whew !) Roped up around 8:45, topped out by 11:40. Cool in the morning, but warmed up nicely by noon.

One of my fave all -time routes. I COVETED it for years & was not disappointed. Oh, those lovely little dikes! The quality!! Exited by topping out & walking off the back. Cool summit w/ "potholes" on top. This marked my return to climbing after a serious rollerblading accident (& 2 surgeries).

Partners: Jochem & Beate Becker.

On the first day we simul-climbed A Zee Tree. Car to car in an hour and a half! Two days later I lead all 5 pitches of Dike route. What an awesome route. Not really that hard but very mentally challenging. A tip for the crux 4th pitch over the 5.9 bulge: the guide shows the only bolt far to the right. As soon as you go over the bulge its right in front of you. Took me 5 minutes to find the damn thing and I was starring at it all along!

A fun day on the Dome. Dirk let me lead the first 3 pitches, which were quite thrilling as I am not used to the bolt spacin in Tuolumne Meadows! It started to reain near the end, and Dirk quickly finished the last 2 pitches. A great climb.

Climbed this route with mt partner Thad. This is a 5.10 route to the left of The Dike Route. It climbs a golden face and is an absolutly under rated bad ass slab climb. The top of it is run out on 5.8 ground but it will seem easy after the tune up on the slab climbing blow this.

My first climb in Tuolumne and in the US for that matter! Really enjoyed the granite for a change from the Canadian Rockies. Nice area, definitely mean to get back...

Dike Route was my first 5.9 ever (I followed it), and a very good one. Excellent thin face climbing. Lots of space between bolts.

Climbed Cathedral Peak in the morning and had time to jump on this in the afternoon since it's right next to the road. The crux is a real eye opener! I pulled the bulge way too far to the right. My partner Mark Reyes said it was easier to the left. Later the next day, while climbing at the Bunny Slopes, I watched a series of six different parties head up this route. Every one of them bailed before the crux pitch. Yeah!
