Big Black Dome (2021)

    Big Black Dome is 11,353 feet high. It was pretty steep most of the way, and unfortunately is was very smoky from some fire that was closeby. In the morning I thought that it might have just been cloudy, but getting higher up you could smell the smoke. It also means I got very few good distance pictures. It was a fairly easy climb though for an 11k peak, probably one of the easiest there is. There was a trail most of the way and where there wasn't, it was pretty obvious which way to go. All in all it was a fun hike although I would have liked to get some pictures of Standhope and Altair. You can also park a lot further up the road than I did to shorten up the trip if that is your thing.
