First time I made summit ridge in '02 we got above the clouds and it was bluebird above. Super amazing! I've been up the standard route from Powerline Pass a few times. It makes a great quick evening (or morning) climb if you bike or take it as a trail run. I think that it's a great trail run!
Also, there's some cool looking routes from Ship Lake on the steeper side, and I bet the NE ridge would be quite the scramble, but those are harder areas to get to.
