|Date:||Tuesday, September 21, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||908 ft / 276 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFortunately, the monstrosity marked as "communications tower' on the topo is not at the summit. I rode up to a manned gate and was stonewalled. The guard said his superiors had advised him not to allow anyone inside and not to bother them for permission, which would not be granted.
After this charming experience, I returned to Clarendon Avenue, drove up Christopher Drive and then onto Crestmont Drive. I found a steep trail across from #25 and #37 (next door to each other) Crestmont, and this led onto a better trail which was soon marked with UCSF Preserve signs that led to the summit.
