Ascent Trip Report

Leaving before dawn I quickly crossed a wide grassland where cows were grazing, then turned up a side-canyon and followed waist-high grassy slopes, reaching the modest summit just as the sun rose. Even with only 420 feet elevation, there's an expansive view over Suisun Marsh and the Sacramento River Delta. Picking a slightly easier descent I was back at the car in under an hour.

This was my last of the 24 Solano County P300's (avg prom)
