Description 

This interesting and worthy route is easy to find... it's the black groove on the left side of the Dome, just right of Prelude to King Kong. It often seems to be wet and thus there is often a bit of growth present, but it doesn't really detract from the climbing.

Climb up the right-facing corner groove, using interesting stems, sidepulls, and occasionally good hand jams. It's pretty pumpy and sustained, and there's a distinct crux pulling over the bulge at the top before arriving on the slab above. The protection, although strenuous to place at times, is good in spite of the "s" listed in my old Rossitter guidebook. Most people seem to belay at the base of Gorillas Delight, but head to wherever your next climb is. This is a good approach pitch for Umph Slot, Super Squeeze, or Gorillas Delight).

Protection 

A light rack with nuts and cams up to 2.5 inches.
