Lembert Dome is one of the granite monoliths rising from Tuolumne Meadows, and among the easiest of them to climb. It’s sheer-sided on most aspects, but the gentler east side provides a manageable route to the top. A signed trail begins from Dog Lake Trailhead, ascending somewhat steeply through the forest until emerging on the bare granite of the dome. From there, simply aim upward on the sloped spine of rock until you reach the top. On the summit, you'll enjoy a 360-degree panorama over the thick pine forest and the Tuolumne River snaking through patchwork meadows below, with Sierra Nevada peaks scraping the horizon all around.
