Amazing Views, No Trail to the top though, make up your own trail from the little pond on PCT to the top ridge where you will find a trail. Probably the best way is to follow the route listed as closely as possible, we did on the way up but not on the way down and that was a mistake that had us rock scrambling a lot.

Did not take trail but instead climbed up the side of the mountain with crampons and ice axe in spring snow conditions. Very similar in steepness to Misery Hill in Shasta. Great views from the top. Some glissades on the way down. Consider roping up and bring your rock climbing gear if you want to safely make it to the highest rock.
