I attempted the NW face route and found the cutoff, but lost the trail about 1/4 mile in so I turned back to the standard route. There were downed trees and a stream that just made it too hard to follow in the dark. Maybe it would be easier in the day, but it seemed like it would have been a tough slog to summit via this route. I ended up summiting via the standard route, but wanted to make sure this info is out there! Also, on the summit, I heard through the grapevine that the NW face route was loose and miserable.
