About King Dome:

Some climbing was initially done in the Crown King area back in the mid '70's. In the early '90's some routes were put up on Fool's Gold Wall, an obvious 200' granite formation above the road on the switchbacks into Crown King. A couple of years later, a plethora of excellent sport routes were put up on the King Dome, a really nice formation above the town.
Nearest town or city: Crown King
Directions: Fools Gold Wall is accessed by finding a pullout along the switchbacks below the wall and hoofing uphill (ugh!). The King Dome can be access either via 4WD mining road out of town (drive or hike). If you choose this way a jeep or shorter wheel base truck would be the way you can get up this trail. I say trail because it is really narrow and imposible turn around until you get to the top. Plan on some new desert pinstriping. There is camping at the top with a good view. The only other way is to park below the formation and bushwhack uphill to it (way ugh!).
