Fairview Dome

North Face, Regular Route

Beta Images Slide Show

One of the best routes in the Tuolumne Meadows area of Yosemite National Park. The climb begins with a short crux section, then consistent, moderate, quality pitches up cracks and dihedrals on the famous white high country granite that characterizes this area. The road runs right next to the Dome, so don't even think about planning this for a weekend unless you have exceptional patience.
