Absolute easiest way to the top of MD Heights. Avoid the hike up and down!

I went up the middle of the ramp and pro was sparse, falls would be bouncy. Very easy climbing though, just a lot of lichen. At the left side of the vegetated ledge the belay is spread out. Climbing is even easier to the tree.

The best way down is to scramble down the D Route gully to SS rap rings, short rap to top of D route, then a long rap from the slings on tree. I did a double rope rappel this way on the second rap and I noticed my mid point (60m rope) was right at the bottom. With stretch it is possible with a single 60...knot your ends and stay left to avoid the swing.
