Fairview Dome, Tuolumne Meadows, California © DavidR

This is probably the best dome in The Meadows and whilst Regular Route and Lucky Streaks justifiably get many accents, there are many more fine routes getting very few repeats. I have never been disappointed with any route I have done here, indeed all the climbs I have done here have had a sense of adventure almost unique to this dome. If you arrive to find Regular Route crowded (as it often is) why not go round the corner and enjoy the superb Great Pumpkin which you will almost certainly have to yourself. For the adventurous amongst you, go wild on the main face, but be warned it is addictive and will be in your blood forever!
