Ascent Trip Report

Laura drove us up Summit Road, boldly passing the "No Trespassing" and "Private Road" signs as she went through the open gate to the Nibbs Knob Trailhead; also, Laura passed people in 4 cars along the way, two of which ignored us and two of which waved at us. From the trailhead, which is higher than the peak, we walked down and then up the dirt road all the way to the summit. Afterwards, we returned to the car and then dove onto the trailhead for Loma Prieta.
