Lost trail in avy zone
The avalanche zone which starts around 4500' elevation on the approach to Dome.
One needs to leave Bachelor's creek and start going up this painful section.
The powerful avalanche which occurred in 2002 razed down most trees in its
path, and erased the trail under the debris. Several people have reported
getting lost in this area - the best bet might be to use a map and
compass and head over and under the dead trees in the desired direction!

Really sorry Bob, I didn't notice your post until recently. If I recall correctly, the avy zone is somewhere on this slope. We went to the top of the ridge, and followed the right fork of Bacherlor's Creek SE towards the ridge top from where we could see Cub/Itswood lakes. One could bypass this part by going straight up one of the gullies to the right of Bachelors creek at the flat portion (~4500 elevation), bearing straight East towards Cub/Itswook lakes. We did that on our way down by mistake (As we lost the trail :).
