Ascent Trip Report

While on Santa Rosa Island for volunteer trail maintenance we had a little spare time and decided to summit Black Mountain. Drove the Main (Soledad) Road to seldom used, dead end, Black Mountain Road. A NOAA weather station is on the summit, but no benchmark or register located. Views were great and the weather was nice.
