We recently we up to Tom's and came back to Glass Dome. On the back side, on the NNE side, there's a crack running up with a single bolt hlaf way up. Need beta. Looks like a fun scoot and boot.

It could be one of two routes, Smooth Sailing is a 5.7 with single bolt and starts on a dihedral. The other one which actually has two bolts is Destination Unknown 5.8, starts by scrambling up boulders to a face with bolt to crack and another bolt on the arete above.

Let me know how it went.

Perfect. Do you know what's on top by any chance? Chains, bolts, etc... Just want to figure out how to get down and make sure we have the right gear.

You can downclimb NW or rappel south off two old bolts (unless some public servant has replaced them).
