The descent from Black Velvet Peak  
I think the beta here may be inaccurate. Walking through the cairn gate had us following more ridgeline for about 1/4 mile before the chossiness of the trail and oddball cairns caused us to turn around. From what I recall you want to head hikers left towards Whiskey peak which is in direct contradiction to the advice here - there is a good albeit initially steep trail directly below these cairns - no traversing and doubling back required.
