Echo Dome is unique for its short approach, its well protected climbing, and the thin flakes that echo when you knock on them. The key to climbing on the dome and prolonging the stature of the routes is to climb by the adage: "pull down, not out."
Location: Echo Dome is located near the center of Charons Gardens, just northwest of Tiny Bubbles and East of Crab Eyes. Approach: To reach Echo Dome, park at the Sunset parking area and hike the trail west, as if you were headed to Lost Dome or Crab Eyes. Cross a small creek a couple of times. At the point where the trails steepens dramatically and goes west, look for a well-traveled trail that forks left into the trees. Follow this trail up and over a small hill to a small creek at the base of the Echo Dome formation (which faces due west). Follow the creek until you are on the far south side of the formation and then follow several ribs of rock up and to the ledge system at the base of the routes.
