North America, United States, California-Sierra Nevada, Artesian Route, Charlito Dome, Kings Canyon National Park

Artesian Route, Charlito Dome, Kings Canyon National Park. Situated next to and just south of the famous Charlotte Dome is a large south west-facing slab. A right-facing comer on its upper half and a peculiar spring of water halfway up mark the route. In June, moderate but serious face climbing to the comer and two crack pitches put Dick Leversee and me on the summit of this fun back- country route. (III, 5.9.)
