One important piece if info is to aim to cross the rocky basin at 4900' to avoid some nasty slide alder.
This is a great route, short and direct, with minimal brush on the approach and minimal choss on the scrambling portions. Quite a lot of fun class 3 scrambling on this route. We were expecting Ballard to be a horrible choss pile but it really wasn't bad. It was a pleasure to join such a strong, motivated, and fun group of people on this trip.
