Ascent Trip Report

We drove from Oakland across the San Mateo bridge and parked in San Bruno. Then BART to Glen Park. Bus #36 to the TH. It's impressive the way the bus driver coaxes that thing up the steep, narrow streets of San Francisco. Walked the trail to the viewpoint which was cool. Fog on the W but views of pretty much everything that was land. Then hiked up to the HP and the cross. This was a little more interesting than I expected with the woods, trail, cross and good views.
