Four of us walked along the road from the locked gate and BLM parking area about a mile past Wright Mountain, then up the use trail to La Centinela and up the north side slope. On the return we bushwhacked/scrambled to the Joaquin Ridge benchmark and back to the road.
Climbed all 3 rocks on a beautiful New Years Eve with Bob Burd and Steve Sywyk. Tried to get here 5 years ago, but only made it to Joaquin 2. These are probably the largest rocks in the Diablo Range, and the views are great.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
