Pretty much everything about this was a complete guess, and that includes the stats, which are my best conservative guess. After being unexpectedly turned back for Woolsey on Agua Caliente Rd, Scott and I decided on Saddle Mt since it was close and there are sheep there. We saw 5 sheep, which was a huge plus. Didn't have any info on the route, so we took a blind stab and followed a rough trail around the base and to a saddle, and then took a wash up to a smaller saddle, which cliffed out, and then turned back. We were no where near where we needed to be, but we saw those 5 sheep.

I didn't really have this fairly minor peak on my radar, and given the effort to get to it for the reward, I am not likely to return any time soon. Not unless I have a guide, or I study the route. The south side is super hot, and rocky, which took some of my desire to return, away, but the real route avoids that, so who knows.
