OK, yes, I have two reports for the same peak. Sue me. After the rain, hail, and wind stopped I went back for another beating, this time starting from a large pulloff on the southern side of the road. The route ascends steeply through the forest towards the 12,581/Turner saddle, essentially. The route naturally funnels that way. Contour under 12,581 and Turner becomes obvious above treeline. Cross some marshy flats then ascend steeply towards the ridge crest. There's some loose stuff but not bad. The final summit block is rocky Class 2/Class 2+, mostly stable.
