If you plan on climbing this in more than one day, you will need a backcountry permit for the Tuttle Creek Trailhead from the Forest Service.
Water: The last water is available when you cross the creek before the 3rd class gully approach.
Descent: From the top of the climb, head east towards a large knob. Pass this on the left, and head towards the sharp East Ridge of Lone Pine Peak. Stay to the left at possible junctions and navigate through the sand and shrubs. Below the steep section, trend right down the main gully until you see an obvious saddle on the left (Stonehouse Buttress is on the right of the saddle). Climb up to the saddle and enjoy the open, sandy slopes that you can run down. You will hit the road and walk on the other side of Tuttle creek from your car. Walk until you see a trail on the other side of the creek and find the trail on your side. Follow this and you will locate a footbridge across the river. Hike up the road and back to your car.
