The Chromosome Dome
The Chromosome Dome is one of the Milford Domes in the Mineral Mountains. Home to some of Utah’s best off-the-beaten-track climbing adventures, the domes—a collection of white granite cliffs, buttresses, towers, and castles—offer loads of bolt-protected slab routes and tricky jam cracks to thrill climbers. Be sure to bring your Traditional (Trad) rack to get the best of these climbs. The developed cliffs, centered around Rock Corral Recreation Area, are easily accessed from Milford and state Highway 21. This is a true adventure climbing area with only a few named formations and routes. It’s best to set up base camp at scenic Rock Corral and explore the area. Wander around the secluded formations and pick a suitable route. Make sure to bring a climbing guide book or contact a local guide company who can help you with your rock climbing adventure.
