The ridge from Middle Mountain A to Point 13,460 A does not go - you can take it down a ways but eventually you'll be blocked by massive vertical walls and towers. We didn't stay on the ridge, instead dropping southwest down steep and loose slopes and eventually into a steep and very loose gully which dumped onto a high, flat shelf below all of the vertical cliffs on the ridge. Contouring around the cliffs to the west Whiley went farther south and up grassier slopes to 13,460 A's rocky upper slopes; I opted to just go direct, which consisted of a talus field, some grass, and then a Class 2 talus gully that opened to the upper slopes. From the upper slopes the summit is a Class 2 hike. The GPS coordinates and marker listed on the site (as well as Google's marker) are incorrect; if you go to that point the true summit will be just to the south and is obviously higher.
