Great place to do that first Big Wall experience. The direct route and Astroman are spectacular!
Walk from the Ahwahnee Hotel or the North Pines campground. Before you reach the caves there is a track going up the drainage course coming down from the south west side of the column. The climbers trail continues right around to the base of North Dome Gully. The descent down North Dome Gully has been the scene of many accidents and is can be difficult to negotiate even in the day light. Follow the tracks from the top of the gully. When in doubt traverse further to the east before making your way down. Do not attempt at night
