My son and I just climbed to the summit. We started in a wash on the North of the Craig and followed a ravine heading south just West of the massive cliffs at the bottom of mountain. We stayed on the left side of the ridge. There is a low angle crack at the east side of the summit mastiff. We found a chain ladder in the enclosure at the bottom of this crack. Protect it as the ladder's chain loops over 1/4" rebar pounded into a crack. It was 4th class scrabbling but using a rope, some cams and nuts made it safer. There is a tree to rapel off just above the ladder.
