Getting to the cone is a bit of an ordeal in and of itself, lots of big flaky boulders on the way up that offer little grip for shoes. Be very careful scrambling up as it is easy to slip. Also be aware of very thick plant growth in the area that is prime habitat for snakes as often times you'll have to step right on an overgrown bush to make it to the anchors up top. Stick to the right side of the cone to get up because the left side is super steep, flaky as hell, and just generally awful.
