Climbed this after hiking down the Varney Creek Trail to its intersection with the Mountain Lakes Loop. Bushwhacked up from the south. It was pretty rough going to the summit, but nothing compared to the descent along the northwest side of the mountain, which was pretty terrible talus the entire way.
Nice views from the top, and Mountain Lakes as a whole is a wonderful place to hike, but I'd recommend tackling this peak in winter, when you can walk on the snow instead of on rocks and through thick, shoulder-height shrubs.
