There's a trail 95% of the way up "Igloo" from the pass, and the trail runs out into some black tooth-like rock near the summit. This is the jagged part of the ridge visible from the pass. This goes at Class 2+ and is fairly solid. Everything after this initial black rock section is dinner plated like crazy. There's a trail to the summit. I attempted to get to "Mountain Boy Peak" but knew the ridge direct did not go, so I descended down the dinner plates. They are terribly loose and shifty, and I didn't feel like dropping down like 500 feet on that junk (and then reascending it on the way back) since the day was getting late. It's probably doable but it would be a hard-fought scrap reascending it.
