Joseph ClaghornGothic Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2007

Joseph Claghorn

Didn't have any views with the fog, but the cross in the fog created a somewhat gothic environment. Although not originally created as a memorial to the Armenian massacre, it did open my eyes to a chapter in history I didn't know much about...1.5 million Armenians massacred by the Turks. Better views can be had from nearby Twin Peaks, which is heavily touristed.

of fog. Took my wife and 1 year old daughter up(it was here first summit) It took us 30 minutes from car to summit and back down. Then we headed to Bubba Gumps to celebrate. All together a great day in the greatest city in the world. A word of warning. Don't take a stroller up the trail and don't wear flip flops.

Since I live in San Francisco, I figured I'd make the quick walk to the top. It was a beautiful day today and the view towards downdown and south sf were really great. Too bad there really aren't any good views towards the ocean...to many trees on the west side.

Perhaps the only COHP in CA with easy access by public transit. In fact, I waved off a bus at the trailhead.

My wife, youngest and I had time to kill after the Exploratoreum closed and the time we were to pick up my middle daughter from the theater where she was performing, so we drove down to Mt. Davidson and strolled up and back. The views of the lights of the East Bay at twilight was cool.

DeanEarly morning visit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 5, 2004

Fellow SP'er Dennis Poulin and my self hit this one about 6 a.m. on a sunday morning while it was still dark. Kinda spooky in a way but an interesting place. No traffic at this time of the morning and we went on to do the cohp's of Santa Cruz and San Mateo. Interesting plaque just below the cross. The photos here give me an idea of what the area looked like in daylight. Not much of a hike. Lots of trash along the trail, not an area I'd want to be in alone at night. However, it was the first of 4 cohp's in one day before I had to fly back home via the Sacramento airport.

Went up at about 12:30pm, up that ridiculously sloped Dalewood Way from Portola. The cloud deck was right around the peak, so not much in the way of visibility, but still some peaks at good views to the south. Overall the mountain is very lush and green, and a nice quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle below. Will definitely come back when its clearer.

This was a nice little easy jaunt for me and my 6-month pregnant wife (she's in no mood to hike anything more major than this one right now). I think it would be cool if they got the San Francisco Marathon to climb up this peak.

Climbed to the monument, but wasn't too impressed with the views.

derbillyMemorable highpoint  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2003

This is a memorable highpoint with nice city views and a cool monument at the top, one of the best of the lesser highpoints. Of course this doesn't offer much in the way of mountaineering, but what can you expect from 927 feet!

A hill just a mile or so from where I grew up. Had a lot of fun climbing around as a kid. Don't forget to see Clint Eastwood climb to the top in "Dirty Harry"!

cjrandallNighttime city lights  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 24, 2002

I hit the summit on my way through town to visit a buddy who lived up in Marin County. No problem finding the trailhead, even with Gary Suttle's somewhat dated 1993 description. It was at night, and a bit chilly on the summit, but the view of the city lights was awesome.

I must disagree with the comment from the description that county highpointing is the only reason you would want to visit Mount Davidson. There is a quite a nice view of the City from the summit here.

That being said, I generally prefer Twin Peaks for views of the city, less obstruction and a totally clear view downtown to the financial district.

A rather unique peak, my wife, friends and I went to the top to cap off a great 30th birthday weekend. Great Views!!!

Matthew HollimanLame highpointing day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 14, 2003

Matthew Holliman

With Bob, quite possibly the weakest day we've ever spent out: Vaca, this one, and then two other equally forgettable bumps whose names I can't even remember down near San Jose. With the exception of North Pal last summer, I think this may have been the last time I went out highpointing.

On my way back to the office from a job site, I saw the cross on the hill, and knew I had to ascend, ASCEND! to the mount.

eh, not much of a "Mount". T'was raining, but the clouds were high enough for a nice view of SF.
