Ascent Trip ReportClimbed from Trails Cafe via ridges and road, aiming for "Teahouse" near Taco Bell Peak. This structure was installed w/o permission on June 30 and has already garnered much affection. It is beautifully built; put together with wood dowels, no nails. Small rectangular tablets of Incense Cedar were provided, as well as pencils. These have a single hole by which they are hung on small dowels protruding from the walls. All kinds of loving sentiments and prayers (many for RAIN or WATER).
Met and chatted a while with couple (Shira, Jay) with baby girl Noa, 6 months old today. Other pleasant encounters, too.
Day was overcast, 70's, with light breezes: perfect for July.
