About The Dome:

Another gorgeous granite slab in Colorado's high mountain plains. It's remote location and fairly long approach make this an excellent destination for the climber who hates crowds. Routes typically range from 2-4 pitches and ascend the crag's cracks and smooth bolted slabs. Has some "Ballsy" leads with long run-outs, so watch out for that and set pro whenever possible to avoid a long fall on older bolts.
Nearest town or city: Pine
Directions: From Denver take I-70 west and turn southwest on 285 to Pine Junction. Turn left (south) at Pine Junction on 126. Go south on 126 past Pine (Bucksnort Slab and Sphinx Rock) to Buffalo Creek and turn east on 96 for 2 miles of gravel road and park in a large designated area on the road's north side. Hike (and I mean, HIKE) northwest up a trail in a dry gulch until The Dome is in sight and then scramble up a gulley trail and across the talus field to its south east face. Allow an hour for the hike in.
