About Daff Dome:

DAFF Dome, which stands for Dome Across From Fairview, is a large formation on the north side of the road with several classics. West Crack (5.9) has a hard move off the ground then lots of fun cracks above while Crescent Arch (5.9 plus) is an engaging route up a striking line with everything from wide cracks to delicate face. These routes are often crowded so plan accordingly. Additionally there are numerous face routes, with some even offering decent pro.
Nearest town or city: Tuolumne Meadows
Directions: Park along the road within sight of the dome in any of several pullouts and hike up slabs to the base. Plan on 20 minutes or more for the approach.
