Ascent Trip Report

Buddy and I started out at 0730 with a mission to get to Mass, climb a peak or two, and get the rental car back by 1430. For breakfast, we found a Mexican Restaurant in close proximitity to Church. Any place that serves Tacos at eight in the morning is pretty awesome, despite the flies. We attended the FSSP Latin High Mass at 0900 and were off to Cowles MT. by 1030. At 1100, we started up the TH and were at summit in 25 minutes. Continued on trail to Pyles Peak, hitting a 1380ish peak along the way. Descended Pyles Peak to the road and hit the car by 1230. Not satisfied with turning the rental car in early, we drove downt the road a littl further to Kwaay Paay summit. hitting the TH at 1300, we were up and back to the car at 1400. We pulled into the Rental car lot at 1430 on the dot and walked down the street to the local brewery before hailing our cab. Nice views of the San Diego area from the top of all the small peaks. Caught view of some more prominent peaks for the next time we come back to SD in 2016.
