Been wanting to do this one since I saw it from Aix. Started off interestingly enough taking the wrong trail from the parking lot. After I figured it out I got up to the little saddle in a couple hours. Angled up to the ridge through the grassy slopes and then hopped over the ridge to the base of West Peak. Easy scrambling up. On the way back, I got lost for about 45 minutes as you can't see the saddle while in the trees. I ended up heading down Miner's Creek before I figured out I needed to head straight south which was actually up from where I was to find the trail. Finally used the compass in my first aid kit. Spooked a herd of goats on the ridge and then an elk with a huge rack in the switchbacks.
