Ascent Trip Report

Climbed after a morning business meeting in Dublin, CA on my way back to SFO to fly home that night.

Parked at the observatory and had a good wander around the various tops. The fence by the gate on the access road is almost completely fallen down at the beginning so it hardly even felt like trespassing..

Track recorded is from summit back to car only, I forgot to turn it on until I got to the top..
