I drove up the fun road on the west side that goes up a wash and parked at about 5090'. Then I went up the west ridge. There were 2 spots that I found unnerving. They were both very easy technically, but if you slipped you would roll 900' to the bottom.
I've climbed this peak at least 3 times dating back to 1990. THe first time was with my dad and two brothers in 1990. We went up the West Ridge and down the S/SE ridge. Another time my brother and I descended the steep South face on steep and crumbly rock.
I had been wanting to visit this one for a couple years and I finally had the chance on a recent trip to Las Vegas. I hiked up from the road and found that it was much more interesting than I thought it would be as figuring out the best hiking route is a bit more complicated than it first appeared. A short hike but an enjoyable one that led to the triangulation structure at the top.
