Spot the line! Dike Route, Pywiack Dome © Grahame N

Crag features

Pywiack Dome has a few classic climbs, but the crag's main appeal is the short approach coupled with beautiful views of Tenaya Lake. This tends to be a busy crag, especially for Zee Tree and Aqua Knobby. If you drive by and see people queued up, then just continue driving to another crag. 

Best time to climb: June - October

Safety warning: Beware of afternoon storms. 

Approach notes

Park in the large pullout along hwy 120 near the dome and follow dirt trails to the crag.  Many of the climbs involve some 3rd-4th class approaches on slab and are not obvious.

Descent: Two options.

(1) From the summit, head to the NE corner and look for rappel rings. Getting to this location involves a small amount of downclimbing but nothing too serious. Rap down 40ft and walk around the dome and back towards the road.

(2) From pitch 4 of the Dike route, rap down with two 60m or one 70m rope.
