There is a great moderate slab route on nearby Mt. Webster, "Lost in the Sun? I think? 5.5, 5 or 6 pitches with bolted belays. The approach isn't that bad, 30 minutes max, and the climbing is very relaxed. Might be a better option than Mt. Willard which doesn't have much moderate climbing that is plagued with lots of loose rock. Elephant Head, at the top of the notch, has a fun 5.6 or 5.7 right up "The Trunk" which is pretty cool too, with some TR options nearby.
