Ascended the south face route on 7/17/2016 with Robin Young, Laurel Viele, Jayson Phillips and Pete Metzmaker on a Glacier Mountaineering Society outing. Weather was perfect. No difficulties encountered. I would suggest that if you follow distressbark's route you stay very low on the red scree shoulder on a pretty good game trail. Follow this until you reach a section of the slope that has some vegetation for better footing. Be cognizant that the scree ramp goes up to the very last notch you see below the summit. The climbing above the notch is easy class three with minimal exposure. I doubt that anyone that made it this high would require a rope.
