Ascent Trip Report

Second day climbing up this view point. The day before I left from the parking turn out down where the paragliders climb up to Mount Zion to launch which made this climb several hundred feet of vertical. Today, I had Karen with me and she was getting a blister on her feet from wearing shoes without socks so we drove up 2-3 more turnouts higher on the hill and found the larger parking area (paved) at Windy Saddle and parked. This made the ridge climb to the peak fast and easy. I would have taken her over to the better views at Mount Zion but I did not want to push our luck with her feet getting blisters as the trails up the ridges are steep and non maintained.
