Approach


From the day use parking lot directly below North Dome, hike up talus and forested slopes to the Dome. Allow about 30 - 45 minutes.

Route Description


This route climbs the wall between Freak Show and North To The Bone.
Climb the large right facing dihedral on the apron to gain the base of the main wall. The line then goes up a black streak to a small ledge with a flake, where it follows superb cracks up and right to a long ledge. The rest of the climb has mixed aid and face climbing.
