Ascent Trip Report

From I-80 I took the Cherry Glen exit, then north to Pleasants Valley Rd and north 5 miles to Mix Canyon Rd. I followed Mix Canyon Rd approx 5 miles to a gated road on the left, which was open. I drove to within 150 yards of the top without difficulty and encountered no one, perhaps because it was Sunday. The summit area is topped with various communications facilities including a fenced tower, dubbed #20. Fortunately, the high point lies outside the fenced area. I walked around to check out any possibly competing high points. Who know what the original high point was before before the peak was leveled to accommodate the mountaintop facilities? Despite the overcast there were good views of Mt. Tam, Mt. Diablo, and the Sutter Buttes.
