I would agree with the east side approach, but then I haven't personally atempted the west side approach, yet...
Looking at the dates that you mentioned I assume that you have probably already accomplished your goal. Please post up a trip report with pictures if you went. I'm very interested in seeing what the mountain looked like this weekend compared to what we encountered on September 11th. This was probably my second most favorite climb this year; the first being climbing Fossil mountain with both of my boys.
