    There are numerous routes to the summit, including a traverse of the north face. The easiest route is the "Southwestern Talus Slope Route" ascending the talus slopes and very short cliff bands on the SW side of the peak. There is very little exposure and much of the route is on primitive trail. Take the (usually) crowded boardwalk towrd the Hidden Lake Lookout and turn left onto a climbers trail just before the lookout. Follow this to the second saddle (between Reynolds and Dragontail), then head up through easy scrambling to the scree slope. Numerous cairns will guide you through the cliffs.
