If you decide to do the entire East Ridge, from the top of the gully head west just below the south-facing cliffs, encountering a few 4th Class sections, until you get to the the middle of another snow gully (Chaos Couloir). Head up this couloir (similar climbing as the first one) and, from the top, make your way along the broad, low-angled east ridge toward the summit snowfield. Get out your ice axe again for this final short snow slope which takes you to the relatively snow-free summit.
Scramble northeast toward Tyndall Glacier, and either descend that down Tyndall Gorge and back to Emerald Lake, or take the Flattop Trail.
