this is a great training route if you enjoy long scrambles, BIG elevation gains (10000 ft), and solitude.
My roomate and I climbed this during spring break 2001.
Since it was the end of winter, we experienced some deep snow wallows, but mostly lots of loose tallus. There were some class 3 sections.
We spent 2 nights on the mountain, starting from the sparkplug mine and ascending the ridge due south. Once gaining this crest it is a simple route west for miles.
