Aspen grove is a shorter, but tougher route. The other main route, Timpanooke is a mile or so longer but the trial head starts a 1,000ft higher. The trails meet at the 'saddle' about 1/2 hour walk from the summit. Bring lunch for the top, plenty of water, and some warm clothes for the hike from the saddle, up Devil's Staircase to the top (typically very windy). The fastest way down is to sled down the snowfield south of the summit. Access the timpanooke trailhead and parking lot through right fork of American Fork Canyon.
