Polly Dome 2010


Interesting Facts & Highlights


First appearing on the Tuolumne Meadows 15' quad in 1953, it was named for Mrs. Polly McCabe, a daughter of Col. Forsyth and the wife of Lt. McCabe. R.B. Marshall of the USGS bestowed the honors in 1910 and the lakes just to the north became Polly Lakes out of common use. A popular spot for climbing during the summer. The dome is over 2 miles long and has forested north and west slopes. Stately Pleasure Dome has 10 class 5 climbing routes. The rest of the larger dome has a few class 2 routes to the top and at least 4 class 5 climbing routes. The summit has unobstructed views north over Tuolumne Meadows to the Sierra crest, northwest over the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne and east to the Cathedral Range.
