Ascent Trip Report

Yet another ascent of a favorite short hike in Tilden Regional Park, only a few miles from home. I was here to pay my respects to Adam, who tragically and suddenly died at home on January 9 in San Diego, overcome by his inner demons. Adam was an icon of the peakbagging community, immensely successful in his pursuit of county highpoints and prominence peaks at home and abroad. He worked tirelessly to keep the scattered group closely connected and to encourage others in their own endeavors. May Adam rest in peace.
