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!?"
"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."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
