Route Climbed: East Slope Date Climbed: February 20, 2005
Discovered the East Slope Trail that led to the summit. It was really windy up there! It was also raining. couldn't see much at the top that time except a bunch of antennae. Been up 4X since then, mainly when it snows.
Route Climbed: From Sierra Azul / Mt. Umunhum Date Climbed: 199?
From Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve, one can find the paved road leading to Mt. Umunhum, signed Private Property and gated. I hiked up this road and then along the summit ridge to Loma Prieta. On the way back I was warned by one land owner, then barred from recrossing the property of another. I spent several hours detouring around his property on the south side of the ridge via dirt roads and bushwhacking (ugh!). Beware, this route is entirely on private property as far as I could tell. The views are really grand, but not worth the hassle.
