Ascent Trip Report

Moonlight climb no headlamp necessary. Very comfortable wish I had a bike for the smooth trail gradual up and down nature of the ridge. Easy climb not a lot of steep slopes,no wind,cool clear weather with a marine layer down to the west. Didn't see any of the famous wildflowers on this super dry year.Very neat hike almost always on top of the ridge with views off to both sides. The house on top has fallen.
