That sounds like the type of adventure this mountain will give you.
My friend and I took the south facing firebreak all the way up. Thick brush and class 3 exposure near the top. Took to long on top, watched one of the most amazing sunsets of my life, came down in dark which was very hard to do, also spooked a large animal.
I had quite an adventure in doing this mountain and I'll probably do a trip report on it. Even though I took the easiest route from the navigation standpoint, I had some trouble in route-finding on the return. And even though I lost my GPS, I greatly enjoyed getting to this peak.
