From your parking spot climb east up a broad rib to the peak’s North Ridge. to the ridge crest. Turn right and follow the ridge to the summit block. Ascend the summit block on its north side. John Platt reports “This is a hike except for the one move to the top. Which has a bomber handhold and a pretty good foothold to gain the ‘au cheval’ summit.” See the Flying Fish Peak for additional details.
