In 1993 the pass was a cornice and we had to hike up to the right from amp. This made me nervous to do with my sons 16 & 11. It was my second time. Hiking down was a piece of cake. Just look for the easy way down (to the right). To us it was obvious. I think trouble arrises only when someone is in a hurry.

I am a bit confused about your post, crosscountry. When you said "amp" did you mean Amphitheater Lake? If so, Dumbbell Lakes Pass is the pass between Lakes Basin and Dumbbell Lakes, NOT between Amphitheater Lake and Dumbbell Lakes. Or maybe I simply misunderstood you. Sorry.

CC: The pass from Amphitheater to the Dumbbells that often has the cornice is called Cataract Creek Pass rather than Dumbbell Lakes pass (btw Dumbbells to Lakes Basin).
Since my fishing (etc.) website is still down, you can be distracted by geology stuff at: http://www.fresnostate.edu/csm/ees/facu ... ayshi.html
