About Dogma Dome:

This place has 15 moderate Tuloumne-style bolted friction climbs on excellent granite. It is very close to Shaver Lake (you can check out the lake from your belay) and the approach takes about 20 minutes. You can even climb here in the winter. It makes for a fun full day of climbing. Routes average 5-6 bolts in 100 feet, with longer run-outs on the lower angle top sections. Located in a beautiful forest. A pleasant suprise. Directions from the climbing guide:Dogma Dome is just north of Shaver Lake at the turn-off to Big Creek. Go 50 yds up the road past the Big Creek turnoff and look for a hidden dirt road on the north side of a blind curve. Park a little ways up the dirt road. Walk north on a jeep road that follows some power lines crossing a creek. After 100 yards the jeep road turns right and begins climbing. Take all the left options and look for surveyor's tape. You will see the dome to your left but don't cut over until on top of the hill.
Approach: there is no more tape, now there is a pile of rocks on a tree stump
