A buddy and I did what we think to be the second ascent of this years ago (10?).
Anyhoo, we did score 2 mint A5 beaks that were used for the anchor (Middendorf/Shipley). As I recall I was able to twist the cables and they just fell apart in my hand.
Might not be the second(not that it matters) but I would assume if somebody else was up there they would have scored those beaks.
Choss pile but cool summit and view.

Maybe there was a different way for the approach (didn't appear to be?) but we scrambled up the northwest side for the approach (short minor class 4 bands), climbed a 5.9 crack on the northeast side, walked around (counterclockwise) to the south side, scrambled up a class 3 slot and then aided on bolts up the west face to the top.
A double rope rappel down the west face got us to the bottom.
I thought the rock quality on the climbing was fairly good but the rock quality on the scrambling was really chossy. Neat adventure and killer summit.
