Date Climbed: Apr 3, 2010

Drove up in the early morning - the summit parking lot was deserted and there was a coat of ice. Misty haze obscured everything... was hoping to see the Sierra.

kaylam875 Diablo Peaks  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 1, 2016


As part of my training for the High Sierra Trail, a group of friends and I backpacked five Diablo peaks. Started from Mitchell Canyon, tagged Twin Peaks and Eagle Peak, then camped at Juniper Campground. On Day 2 we tagged Diablo, North Peak, and Mt. Olympia before returning to Mitchell Canyon.

Well, I figured if I had to travel on Sunday for work, I would make the best of it. Loved the drive up to Juniper campground parking area. Hurts upgraded me to a Dodge Charger, which made the drive quite pleasant. Hikes from Juniper up to the busy summit area of Mt Diablo, but didn't stay long. Left the crowds behind and distended towards North Peak. Loved it over here. Steep going near the top! Relaxed on the way back by a bubbling brook on Mt Diablos's north side. Saw a great looking snake plus a lot of Coulter Pine Cones. About 7 miles round trip.

huskertriguyOne tough cycle  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2017


Rented a bike from Cycles on Solano in Albany (check them out, they are great). It was a hybrid with one of those internal drivetrains and a rubber "chain" -- not the best for Diablo, and it was slow going.

Started from downtown Danville (I know, I kind of took it easy on myself). It was a beautiful day and although there were motorists and other cyclists, I was surprised there were not more. Lovely view from the top though we could not quite see the Sierras.

I lived in Berkeley for 4 years and always promised myself I would cycle to the top. I cannot believe I waited this long to get up there.

cdogpost Xmas day hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 29, 2016


long day loop hike with Amy. We left from Mitchell Canyon visitor center. Up to the top via Mitchell Canyon and Deer Flat Roads, then back down Prospectors/Bald Ridge and Eagle Peak. 13.7 miles, 3600' of elevation gain. Definitely earned the views from the top!

Been up this mountain many times, by bicycle back in racing days, and by foot, up the back side routes. Every time up is different. Today the summit was cloaked in fog, visibility about 15 feet. No matter. This mountain always is fair game for a good hill-climbing workout and today was no different.

FairweatherFrom Mitchell Canyon x2  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2008


From Mitchell Canyon with Jeff, Todd, and Devin on a very hot day. Ice cream on top made it all worth while.
Too hazy for much of a view.
Repeated in 2009 as a team building exercise with coworkers.

Climbed Mount Diablo for a second time, taking the rarely-used Olympia Trail and bagging Mt. Olympia and North Peak on the way. Strenuous/steep hike but breathtaking and off the beaten path.

Fun relatively easy hike (Back Canyon/Murchio/Prospector's gap route) with great views. Needs to be route-finding-aware due to confusing signs and crisscrossing trails.

I grew up looking at this mountain everyday, living in the East Bay. I guess the 'Devil' started my love for mountains.
