5 out of 5 stars South Face, North Dome

Amazingly fun route! It is very burly for the 5.7 rating. There are some run out sections. Some of the laybacks were slick. Awesome views and because of the long approach, our party of 3 were the only ones on the route.

5 out of 5 stars Worth the approach.

Approached via Royal Arches. Got a little lost finding start of route. Ascended pretty much straight up from R.A. and ended up on the ledge above the start of the route. Had to down climb some slabs to get to the start. Nice climb. The escape from the corner onto the face at pitch 3 is improbable and fun. Descent down North Dome Gully. 12 hours car to car.
