The crux (5.3) is a 40' face seen in the upper left. (Enlarge to view better.) Either climb the face or the crack in the corner on the left side of the face (or use a combination of both). Then there is a short exposed traverse to the right, followed by a Class 4 pitch of about the same length as the crux. From there, the rest of the way is easy.
of the crux.
There are rappel stations for both pitches. You'll need at least a 50 m rope. Rappelling the crux is pretty complication-free, but I downclimbed the Class 4 pitch because following the rappel, I would have had to pull the rope through some brush and was afraid of the rope getting stuck.
The summit is not visible. On the right is part of Mount Wilson.
