Had the mountain to myself. The road in was a little muddy and slick due to the recent rains. Some unexpected cliff bands on the route I chose from the south. Added a little excitement to the peak. Views of surrounding region were spectacular. Climbed Red Pine Peak in the Sheeprock's after
A bit on the snowy side once I got above 7800' but not bad. I think when I do this one again (my son wants to do it), I'd go up via a western or eastern route. I'm thinking an eastern approach might be nicer than coming in from the north as I did. Others I know went in via Indian Springs on the southwest so that is a possibility too.
