Multimoding is really your best bet here on the west side, if you're trying to get to work on a regular basis over the hill. There are too many days where I'm just too darned tired to work on climbing the hill (and B-H is too far to the south from where I live to be very practical).
Another obscure option available to you is to use Canyon Road, veering off at Canyon Drive. At the top of Canyon Drive you can dodge onto SW Raab Road (no, the maps don't show it, but its there!), and then pick your poison (by the zoo and listen to lions roar for breakfast, down the Hellway, or even by way of Council Crest).
