Hiked from Como Saddle up to North Lyon Peak 8,651' and then up to Lyon Peak. Difficult hike. Got caught in some brush on the way up.
Hiked down from Como Saddle to Stone Spring (with a detour along some of the powerline/mining roads) and then ascended the ridge from the east. Found a use trail (and remains of a rancher camp) towards the ridgetop, but it didn't seem to go the whole way back to the saddle.
Pics, Topo, and commentary are here.
