I ascended San Miguel from Lake Hope via the eastern slopes, and eventually over the western summit, and descended via the southeast ridge. I recommend the southeast ridge in both directions. Both require scrambling, but the SE ridge is much more solid, with larger boulders that generally don't move. On the eastern slopes route, getting up and over the western summit is a nightmare of janky, borderline 4th-class crap. If this still sounds fun, from the western summit look for a narrow route down to your right (north), then swing over to the left (south) side of the eastern summit for the final, easier third-class climb.
