Ascent Trip ReportTook a long lunch and decided to come out for my second climb of the Everest of the Bay climbs. Hot day and the last mile is very exposed to the sun and is the steepest in the climb. Overall a very good training climb but definitely better on a cool day than a hot day.
First mile is fairly steep and the middle 3 miles are very pleasant until the last 3/4 miles which is very steep but doable by most. Some sections you descend and then head back up.
Bring at least 2 liters of water on a hot day.
