This is a very fun climb, but don't believe the hype- there's an easy to follow boot path to the summit. Exposure is overrated- don't make a careless move, and you'll have no problems. Bring a helmet- even if you're solo and alone, the mountain is LITTERED with rock.
First time on this delightful scramble. Fires inhibited the views a bit, but neverthess, this is certainly a worthwhile trip -- not many like this so close to the trailhead -- and the view aspect on the approach (both driving and on the trail) is "I'm going up THAT!?"
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
