Ascent Trip Report

parked at N38.20405 W120.82960, a turnoff from the paved road in a Development east of the peak. Walked west up a rutted road past a couple houses (with driveways coming from the opposite side) to a gate with a no trespassing sign at N38.20392 W120.83658. Turned right and up a grassy slope to find several roads converging near the top. One took us up to the top. A concrete pad next to the old Lookout appears to be the highest point, a bit higher than the VABM.
