Ascent Trip Report

Climbed this peak on the return hike from Corte Madera. Best place to leave the Corte Madera Trail is at the highest point of the trail; there is a fallen log that had fallen across the trail. The log is on both sides of the trail with a section removed for the trail. At the log note the large rock and head up on the right side of the rock (Corte Madera side). At times there seems to be a use trail and you'll notice someone had placed an occasional duck. I recommend having a GPS and the coordinates for the peak as you can become lost very easily. Standing on the highest (& ducked) boulder the view is great.
