Hiked this on an unseasonably-warm winter morning. We started around 10:15am, and didn't see another hiker until we were halfway back down the mountain. About 10 minutes after we left the O'Leary trail and headed up the forest roads toward Robinson, we ended up on the wrong ridgeline (went northwest instead of southwest) and ended up on a smaller peak about 1/5 mile north of Robinson Mountain. We still wanted to summit Robinson, but rather than back-track, we continued along a forest road that went down and south, and then hiked off-trail up the western slope of Robinson Mountain.

The extra mileage and elevation gain is from having to backtrack for my camera and getting off-route coming off the summit.
