Hiking Notes:

The lower south ridge leading up Point 4882 is very brushy, but just below the ridge to the left the route is more open. Look for boot tracks/game trails higher. The summit registry is at Point 5055 with the best views. Higher points may lie north on the summit ridge and you might feel compelled to thrash up to tag them.
