White Domes-- East Peak from West Peak

From the summit of the west peak, you get a nice view of the east peak (and a lot more). The best way to the east peak's summit is to follow what looks like a ridgeline here (it is actually much broader than a true ridge) all the way to the top, encountering mostly Class 2 and easy Class 3 conditions except for one slightly tricky section.

The east peak is the higher of the two, but the west peak has more exposure and overall is more fun to climb, in my opinion.

Better viewed in "Orig."
