Made this ascent with my wife and 7-year old son while boulder hopping from Winnemucca Lake. Probably an easier route coming from the main trail. Once we got out of the boulders it was an easy walk up the south end. No summit register found. Beautiful views! Easy to bag and proud of my little man for making it up!
