Wonderland Valley Central 1

Duckwaddle ♦ Disneyland ♦ Thrutcher

Return to Wonderland Valley Main Index

Trek date: 2013 Feb 22

Includes 3D Galleries of:

  • Duckwaddle Domes
  • Disneyland Dome
  • Thrutcher Dome

Note: This is the area where my friend E!—who hosts the Cali49 website—photographed some remarkable Native American pictographs on the hidden underside of a large boulder. He describes it as the “‘Around Back’ Pictograph/Petroglyph Rock” HERE. I missed it at the time even though I took a shot of it unbeknownst from the wrong ‘Front’ side! I hope to return one day to finish the Central Wonderland Valley—Diarrhea Dome area—where I will add the ‘Around Back” rock to this page.

WONDERLAND WASH is the divide between Wonderland Valley and Wonderland Central rock climbing areas. The wash drains the Far East of Wonderland of Rocks, where Garrett’s Arch can be found. Central 1 comprises three tall formations: Duckwaddle Domes, Disneyland Dome, and Thrutcher Dome, and Vicinity, as it is rudely called. I am sure that Mr. or Mrs. Thrutcher would be mortified to have “Vicinity” playing second fiddle when “Thrutcher” is an imposing feature in and by itself.

The Duckwaddle comprises three sets of towers, with the main rock climbs being on the eastern side away from Wonderland Valley. What I present below are exclusively west-side and south-end shots.

Next to Duckwaddle rises the tallest of the domes. Popular routes on Disneyland Dome include “Mental Bankruptcy,” “Fantasia,” “Mr. Todd’s Wild Ride,” “The Mad Hatter,” “Jungle Cruise,” “Enchanted Stairway,” “Brass Monkey” (a toughie), “Stereo in B Flat,” and “Walt’s Frozen Head,” which you will be happy to learn intersects with the “Brass Monkey” at one point.

Three difficult Thrutcher Dome routes are: “Life without Principle,” “Whales on Ice,” and “Desert Storm” with several lesser challenges available that are far more mundane.

Thank you for viewing Duckwaddle and vicinity. Revisit this page in a few months after I have completed Wonderland Valley, and taken a few additional shots of Duckwaddle, Disneyland, and Thrutcher domes from close up as well as interior shots. The approach to these is from the north end of Duckwaddle Domes, I have been reliably informed.
