Ascent Trip Report

Another local training hike. The weather wasn't great, but didn't stop me. Got a little hail about the size of aquarium gravel a couple times. Chilly wind blowing out of the SW.

Started from a dirt parking area off Curry Street & tried to follow what appeared to be the most likely road, but it was eventually clear it wasn't heading to the top, so then turned off on a jeep trail, which did take me to the top. Reached the peak right at 5 pm, so headed back down right away. It was getting pretty dark by the time I was back down to Curry St., but I didn't need to get out my light.

Nice and tired now, so it must have been a good workout. :-)
