Routes exist on all sides of the freestanding pinnacle. The classic route takes the southeast side. Excellent photo ops from atop Kings Throne and above the Weissner Face area.
Take the West Bluff Trail to the first point where it comes out of the woods for a great view of the lake. Cleopatra's Needle is clearly visable in the Amphitheater below.
Rappel off the summit with a single rope. The rap anchor consists of one large ring bolt, and "Joe 1964" is stamped on it. This bolt is quite old -- some choose to rap off of it anyway. Please see these comments for alternate descent information: mountainproject.com/v/10720…
