Charlotte Dome, E.B. White. Alan Bartlett and I put up a new route on this magnificent formation in August. Several hundred feet right and slightly uphill from Charlotte’s Web is a small pillar below two parallel water grooves. Our route follows the left-hand groove (past two bolts and a bolt anchor belay) for several pitches. Move left, continue up cracks to where the dome angle gradually kicks back and then ascend the headwall to meet the southwest arête and the summit. NCCS IV, F9.
