Description

The path of least resistance the the summit, though not that apparent until you're right under it. Typically called class 4, and most moves on it are that: intuitively ladder-like. I called it easy 5th because there were a couple of distinctly climbingish moves on it that a scrambler wouldn't usually encounter (at the chimney, and especially starting the downclimb from the top). If using a rope, the summit route breaks naturally into two short pitches.

Location

Circumnavigate the peak to scramble loose but easy class 2 and 3 terrain to the start of the largest gully on the south face.

Protection

The volcanic stone is quite loose and covered in gravel, especially after recent rain. More of a "sling it and see" place than holes for chocks. I think many people free solo it.
