Voyager Rock, Space Probe. This is the first dome east of the southern portion of Courtright Reservoir. A multi-crowned pine below the south face is near the start of the route Alan Swanson and I climbed. After a short third-class section, we climbed a clean, right-facing dihedral, which curved to the right near its end. We face-climbed left from near the dihedral’s top to a belay ledge/flake. Two face-climbing pitches later we viewed a spectacular sunset from the summit. (Grade II, 5.10+ .) On Humdinger Dome (east of Voyager Rock), we established a variation of Crooked Neck by face climbing Cool as a Cuke. The new line is to the right of the original route. (Grade I, 5.10.)
