Didn't see a single person, car to car. From the notch, descended 30 ft and took a game trail left to the bottom of the eastside cliffs. Crossed over the first big fan of loose talus and then turned up the gully with a light orange/brown mineral deposit. Before the solid rock I traversed right to the next gully and continued up. Exited upper right through scrub trees to open slopes. Continued up and right to the summit block. Easiest route on the right.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
