Ascent Trip Report

First peak on a 2 peak hike w/ Mesa Peak. Extremely HOT day. Started early-ish 745AM ---but not nearly early enough. Most of the elevation gain and exertion is on the return and it was Blazing by 9AM. Most of the trail is very exposed. Incredible views of the pacific and the valley on almost the entire route!! Do this in the Fall Winter or Spring and it'll be a beautiful mellow 7 mile hike. In the summer it becomes a beast!! No geo marker or register on either Peak :-( that we could locate. Also lots and lots of Ground Bees. But no stings!
