You go from the Lower Saddle towards Lower Exum and continue along the dike to the Teepee col. From there you descend the Teepee Glacier under the East Face, then the Dike couloir (I think that's what it's called) back to the base of the East Ridge.
OK, my path on the image showed something similar. I was less certain about being able to descend from Teepee col, so I assumed conservatively that you can just re-ascend below the east face to descend what you are calling Dike Couloir. I'll update the path to stem from the traverse to access Exum/Petzold ridges, which looks a lot nicer w/o the elevation loss & gain!
I was making these assumptions based off of Google Earth since I didn't have any good photos of those couloirs. Sometimes this works, but sometimes Google Earth smooths out terrain too much to be misleading.
Oh, and BTW, is the image working now? I'm experimenting with putting such images in Google Docs rather than Picasa, but I want to make sure it works. It has shown up for me but that might be due to a privacy setting, which I adjusted & updated the link for.
