If you don't like scree, and have a decent 4x4 vehicle, you can eliminate the tedious slopes and spend your time scrambling to the summits. Just past the aqueduct a well-graded road on the right (north) heads back east and slightly uphill. About 100' from this intersection a not-so-well-graded road heads straight up (north) the side of the peak. This road will take you to a saddle at about 4,400' just east of the summit ridge. The road is steep and sandy in places, so four wheel drive is necessary. It gets rough near the top, but nothing a stock 4x4 can't manage.
