Ascent Trip Report

Not a bad little peak. Far more solitude. Only passed perhaps 5 people on the way to this summit and it is far more remote so far less urban clutter to see and no towers. Not as tall as Cowles but if you are going to go get Cowles, just go ahead and tag on that extra 3 mile round trip and tag this named peak too. IT is #94 of 100 on the Sierra Club San Diego List of 100 but has less than 200 feet of prominence because of how the ridge connects to Cowles.
