This was my favorite summit trip of my 2012 primary hiking season. Martin Shetter and I ascended the peak via the southwest ridge route. The peak has a wide variety of terrain, from steep scree and dirt slopes, steep forests, steep meadows... I think you can catch the "steep" aspects of the route. Some scrambling and side-traversing, too. Fantastic views from the summit. I highly recommend this peak.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
