With Bob B.. Excellent fall day via the SW rib trail. Trail marked with red ribbons. A contractor was clearing loose rocks on the cliffs above Hwy 12 and there was the constant sound of rockfalls.
Hiked up this without any real info on how to do it so I was concerned the route might not go. But turned out to all be easy with no real scrambling which was a surprise as the mountain looks formidable for several angles.
Steep off-trail at first but there was a decent bootpath that leads to near the summit rocks.
