I fully agree with the above re. Power Dome being friendly to small Tri-Cams. Also (on some routes) it's not a bad idea, to carry some 2-4 foot pieces of 5-7 mm rope. On the upper pitches, one can thread the rope in one of the sea of holes and get some form of protection. Nothing else seem to fit into these unique features up there. Just FYI.
What a great site to learn about the area and the people that climb the domes. Just some info on the campgrounds for you. My wife and I will be the hosts at Trapper Springs for the 2009 season. Don't know when we will be able to get up there depending on the snow pack. I work for California Land Management that has been contracted by PG&E to operate the CG. The fee's are now $18 per night plus $3 for extra vehicles(up to 2) This is a NO Reservation campground,(First come, first serve)so ignore the phone numbers on the website to make reservations. Hope to meet some of you and find out more about the domes around Courtright Reservoir, Spring 2009.

Nice to hear from the folks that love Courtright just as much! Deb (my wife) and I would love to meet you and Cheryl this next season. Do you climb? If not, would enjoy taking you up some easy routes on most of the domes. Trapper Dome has a fairly easy route on it that faces the campground, as does Spring Dome (the dome somewhat within the campground, close to the reservoir). Send me an email or PM me here on Summmitpost and we can chat more.
