I tried to follow the directions here for the NE face because it sounded easier: "Class 2-3 Hikers Trail". I contoured around the east flanks and then eventually got cliffed out so I started climbing up. I got cliffed out several times more and ended up spending 45+ minutes climbing places I had no business climbing without ropes. I came straight down what I imagine to be the "NE face" described here---made it summit to base/ridge in less than 15 minutes---super steep but MUCH easier than it looks. I took one look up it on the way up and said no way, but looking back, I should've gone straight up it from the ridge. It wasn't bad at all.
