Ascent Trip ReportOcean vista peaks are always so fun. Hiked with Colin Gregory and Jackie Faylor. Immediately hit with a calf burning uphill. The remainder of the trail was pretty medium in terms of undulation with some steep uphills and descents. most of the trail was overgrown a bit with longer grass and like cat tail plant things (not sure what they're called). Hard dirt though. The upper portions of the trail were very overgrown with tons of poison oak and ocean-y vegetation. Some PO was unavoidable and many leaves were rustled. The peak was Northwest of the trail intersection up Frenchman's road or something. Peak coords places the location just before a chain link fence surrounds some kind of comms facility. Got an email right here confirming my Half Dome permit. Colin literally jumped for joy. Ox hill peak logged as well just down the same road in the opposite direction. Really stupid peak. don't know why that's even on the map. not even really a peak. am I missing something here? Hike back down was down the same trail. Running really fast with no trouble. Made one wrong turn but back tracked a half mile and made it to trailhead to be greeted by an english bulldog and like a mastiff or something. big ol' buddy.
