Two of us climbed Eldorado via standard route. Crossed river via A-B-C points, see attached GPS track. Climbers trail, Eldorado glacier, Inspiration glacier, summit ridge to the top. No people entire day. The summit ridge was indeed narrow and indeed very exposed. Protected by running belay with 20m rope, two snow pickets and two long axes - hammer was really useful to bang those into hard snow. One snow bridge on the glacier was very soft, the pole just poked through it, but was easy to go around. 14 hours round trip. Summit ridge video here:
