Ascent Trip Report

A well-maintained trail leads quickly to the top.

On a windy but sunny and clear January day, the views out to the ocean, across the bay and towards Sonoma and Napa were outstanding.

Climbed with my work colleagues Brian O'Neill and Gaudenz von Capeller on a spare day during a business trip from Switzerland to San Francisco. Later in the day we also climbed Sonoma Mountain.
