MurphyJDon't Underestimate Getting Onto The "Access Ramp"

Kudos to Brenta for his great route description. But climbers should be aware that getting onto the Access Ramp is not as easy as he makes it sound.
A friend and I hiked up there on 8/26/09 and spent over an hour looking for an easy way onto the Access Ramp. Brenta says that "there are many options that only require the occasional Class 3 move". We did not find this to be true. The easiest way I found onto the Access Ramp involved about 50' of somewhat exposed Class 4 slab climbing. My friend is quite risk-averse these days (with 2 young kids) so we had to turn around because of this.
