Ascent Trip Report

be sure to pick up a permit for welch road at the sunol entrance gate. we had no problem finding parking at 10:40am on a sunday (later in the day the spots were fairly full).

there is a use trail connecting the taller and the shorter peak, but it does go over a rock ledge which we didn't want to tackle... and had we gone that way we probably would have missed the awesome wildflower display on the NW ridge.
