I haven't done this scramble before but going through TRs, the scramble from the lookout to the true summit is involved and exposed so please be comfortable with exposure.  

Scramble will go only if the weather aligns with the current forecast.

Please be flexible for either Sat/Sun which will be decided based on precip on late Fri and cloud coverage on Sun. We don't want to miss out on the views but giving time for rocks to dry is also desirable :)
