Headed up from Eldorado Lake to White Dome's E-ish ridge via grassy slopes from the lake. Contoured around the 13378 point on the SW side. Some reports mention a big ravine, and it is indeed big, but it also is very easy to bypass at class 2+ if you want. We descended to near 12.8 to bypass the ravine. Some fun scrambling after crossing a broad slope, although I think you could also keep it class 2+ if you wanted. Ran the ridge to Peak 1. Not much of a trail, but route is obvious.

Descended the White Dome/Peak 1 saddle and contoured back to Eldorado Lake. Standard loose stuff, but all in all a good descent route.
