After passing this impressive peak for the past 30 years I finally decided to take the time and summit it. After driving around it, I found the closest approach on the North East side. Basically you take New River Rd. to 27th Ave. and head south for .7 miles. There is a turn off that you can park at.

For anyone who wants scree climbing practice, this is it. It is very steep and you do the traditional two steps up and one step slide back. It is a bit unnerving, but nothing too scary. If you want, you can go up via the light brush and bushwack to the right of the scree chute, but the scree chute is much more fun. Total time to get up to the summit was 1 hour.
