Ascent Trip Report

Silverado Canyon gate was locked "due to weather" which could only mean hot and windy. Walked additional 6mi, 1000' round trip to trailhead. Went up ridges to major dirt road intersection. Had lunch a bit up on the trail from that to be out of the wind. Jeep drove by (from east side???). Decided to turn back since we were only looking for conditioning and had gotten a late start (1pm).
