Still, I just don't get this. What's the verdict? Is the mountain both difficult and easy?

Either you can do it as a hike, i.e., unroped, or you shouldn't venture onto the ridge. If you have one team member who's nervous about the notch, then a short rope and a very light clean rack are reasonable to bring along, but somebody has to be there who knows how to set up a belay.
