 Seasonal Notes for North Dome

Summer & Fall

I’ve only done North Dome in the snow but it’s famous for its nettle stands. Clothing can help but the terrain is very tricky, so it’s easy to take an extra-painful tumble. Pack Benadryl and if alcohol swabs are part of your hiking kit, they’re pretty good at clearing the worst of the sting.
