North America, United States, California—Yosemite Valley, Basket Dome

Basket Dome. In September 1982 Doug Scott and I did a largely new route on this dome, which sits on the rim facing Half Dome. We began in the jumble of dihedrals at the spur of the southeast side, followed the giant comer known as Straight Jacket for two pitches, then took off diagonally right on new ground, finding interesting climbing on slabs and cracks. Two bolts were placed on the lead to protect the crux, a 5.10 face.
