Does anyone here know the normal way to get to the main summit? I found a short, exposed 5.6-ish traverse around the south side to a gully that worked if you're willing to solo it, but seemed hard to protect. I can't find much useful online, even in the bits of Green's "Rock Climbing Arizona" available through Google Books.
