North America, United States, California—Sierra Nevada, Bear Dome

Bear Dome. Ian Raistrick and I climbed a prow on the west face of Bear Dome in August. The buttress is quite steep and imposing, and only the unglaciated nature of the rock lends plausibility to the climb. In fact, the route is quite easy, with the crux—a 5.8 crack—coming on the second pitch.
