With some trepidation I submit a couple photos here from me and Larry Scritchfield's January ascent of The Labarinth. We got off route at one point, and thus this may not even be a part of the original route, but this does give on some idea of what its like inside the dome. This is a great adventure. BTW, someone commented that this route is the easiest way to the summit. I have not done Cadaver, but I will say that there is  a lot of route finding and fair bit of commitment with this line. Also, retreating would be a nightmare with lots of options to get your rope stuck, and the crux is old. old school F9. But its worth it. Oh, photo credit to Larry Scritchfield

Spoiler beta: We tunneled under the rock he's straddling here and didn't rope up until we were standing on top the boulder above his head in the photo. Can't say the climbing he's on now is necessarily worth it since we didn't really cover it but it didn't seem like it at the time. That "pitch" (for lack of a better term) ended up being about 12 feet of actual climbing and one piece of gear in our case. Jun 15, 2015
