Trying to figure out what he story is with those three sub summits to the west of the main Wilbur summit. How do you get up there?

I suspect that you could traverse to them from the summit - but honestly I cannot remember what it looks like in that direction from there.

To the best of my knowledge, nobody has climbed this south side or the west ridge.

I don't think you can traverse west from the summit. I think the main summit is cut off from the rest of the ridge by a big gap. I could be wrong. Such an unusual mountain.

I think you are correct - here is a photo showing the big drop between the summit and the W part of the peak:
