Continued up old abandoned jeep trail first to East Cobb summit rock (9:20am), then main Cobb Mountain (9:35am) to find a broken glass jar near the benchmark which was probably the old register. Further along the ridge and down to the saddle, then up again through a burned forest to the Sonoma County high point at 10:25am. No register located amongst the blacked trees and brush. Nice views south to Mount Saint Helena. Returned to vehicle at 1:05pm.
