  • Intermediate Mountaineering Climb
  • Challenging
  • Elevation Gain: 8,132 ft

Priority for Tacoma Climbing community until 6/26/20.

You will need both the intermediate glacier and intermediate rock modules, or equivalence, for this trip.

There is little route beta so the trip will be somewhat exploratory.  Plan is to climb the SW peak of Dome then traverse the ridgeline over to the true summit.  Depending on time, conditions and team preferences may also consider a side trip to Sinister Peak.
