From day use parking lot, headed straight uphill and met the dry creek. I just make a bee-line. Found myself in some Class 4+ territory cuz I wasn't interested in a mile of scree. A little tense for a moment but I pulled it off by climbing 2 different rock formations. Beautiful day up there. Was drinking a beer at the Convict store 7 hrs later. :)
Awesome mountain. We found ourselves in some sketchy class 3/4 because we tried a slightly different route on the way down than on the ascent, but still great stuff.
