Ascent Trip Report

this was soon after moving to the bay area. i recall slogging up the dirt road in the heat, and arriving at the top and being very disappointed to learn that people could just drive up there! they were obviously not in the same state of mind as anyone who had earned the peak. i vowed never to hike a peak that people could drive ever again... a vow that i would break many times (for example: mt diablo, paulina peak in OR, even returning to mt tam east from a long hike up from stinson beach).
