Ascent Trip Report

On the ascent, took Diablo View Trail to Spengler Trail, to Old Briones Road, to Briones Crest Trail to peak. This was nice, fairly steady ascent with only about 100ft extra elevation gain. On the descent, did an alternate loop which included Table Top trail to Spengler and back to Diablo view. Gained an extra 400 ft elevation on the descent. The descent actually took longer. Nice views from the top, including Cobb Mtn way to the north.
