With my daughter in a toddler backpack (for me to wear), and with a multi-day road maintenance crew about to start working, I had to do this in the early morning hours and finish hiking within a couple of hours roundtrip. Thankfully, I did... and was able to get out of Road 1230 in time before the maintenance crew started working. Otherwise, I was told I might end up waiting four hours or longer to get through. Great views of Mount Baker, especially most of my summit route from June.
It really isn't that bad, but I'm very comfortable in exposed settings.
Right below the summit block, I took a left at the fork. It's a direct route up the ridge. Class 2 and shorter than going to the right. Looks really steep from below, but once you head up it's not as bad.
