North America, United States, California—Sierra Nevada, Domeland

Domeland. One of Domeland’s most prominent rock formations is a large crag with a smokestack tower on its south end. It was dubbed Steamship Rock by Jim Stoddard and me after we made the first ascent of its east face in November 1970. This is a four-pitch climb with excellent free climbing and a minimum of nailing. NCCS II, F6, A3. Radiant Dome, one of the most prominent massifs in the region, apparently was climbed for the first time on November 15, 1971 by Hooman Aprin and me. Using what seemed to be the easiest route, via the south face, the climb involved three roped pitches, two of them F6. NCCS I, F6.
