From the trailhead, hike 3.5 miles to Grizzly Lake. Walk around the lake, and climb the steep continuous 1200' couloir that comes down right from the summit. The bottom is around 30-35 degrees, and the top is 45-50 degrees. The summit is about a 5 minute walk from the top of the couloir.
For bonus points if the season is good, ski the couloir. The couloir is relatively wide and the runout is pretty safe, but sustained 45-50 degree slopes and variable snow conditions make this fairly difficult.
