Kolana Dome, West Face, Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. John Liebeskind and I climbed the huge right-facing dihedral splitting the center of the west face. We entered low in the crack system by traversing left on scree ledges. After we passed two large ledges, we left the dihedral and ascended a finger crack to the left of the main gash. Easy slabs led to the summit. III, 5.8, seven pitches.
