The route is straightforward: head downstream from the Blodgett Campground, looking up and left for a large grass ramp heading up in the upstream direction into a large break in the cliffs. This is where you want to go; it's class 2 to the ridge top. (More detailed directions are given here, but the way is pretty clear.) I saw a mountain goat on the way up. Once on the ridge, stay close to the canyon edge, where the dead fall is much less. I didn't do this on the way up and it got pretty bush-wacky. The ticks were out in force. Eventually, things open up and the last 1000 feet or so are through open woods with big views. Summit views are grand.
