Thanks to sedibald for adding this peak.

Drive southeast in a 4x4 directly from the San Francisco Pass towards the peak, and follow traces of other vehicles. Park the vehicle at about 4800m (depends on your vehicle). A path is clearly visible on the northwest side of the mountain. Walk through scree and saddle to reach the start of the path, and follow it all the way to the summit.
