I've climbed this several times including at least once by city bus when my borther and I were 9-11 years old. We used to ride the bus and climb the foothill peaks (Ensign, Twin, Meridian) by ourselves.
I also climbed the peaks with my other siblings and with my father on our way to Black Mountain on April 18 1998, which was the last time I was there.
