Rachel looks back toward Indian Ridge. Referring to the tripmap, note that you have to climb a pretty steep hill to get onto Indian Ridge, then descend to the saddle between Indian Ridge and North Dome, then ascend North Dome. 200 feet here, 200 feet there...pretty soon you're talking about some serious elevation gain! That's how this hike gains almost 6000 feet on the round trip.
