The South Dome, Muir

Muir describes one particular peak in Yosemite, the south dome. it has shear cliffs on ether side rising 1600  feet. on the remaining two sides it it a steeply slanting arc. On one of these sides one can climb up to 600 feet below the top but farther ascent would need anchors to be drilled into the rock. In 1875 George Anderson drilled those holes and was the first person to make it to the top. The top appears to be clear but once reached has a few struggling clumps of trees. This dome is one of the grandest and is still unreachable.
