Looking for new climbing partners

Trying to get into shape to climb Whitney's east face. My climbing partner moved and I don't get to climb much anymore. I was leading 5.9-5.10 prior to my partner moving. I live about 5 mins away from Camelback.

Descent off Kuna to Kuna Creek (Coming from Koip)?

Does anybody know if the descent shown on the map below goes at a reasonable difficulty. Basically, I would like to drop off Kuna down towards Kuna Creek. Would like Class 3, or less, with maybe an easy, short section of Class 4 at most. Or, is there an even easier way to achieve this? Just hatching some summer Sierra dreams :D

Coastal Peak

I am in San Jose for business and was hoping to find a coastal peak within around a 2-hour drive that I can reach the trailhead with a 2-wheel drive vehicle. A hike in the 5-10 mile range with a gain of up to like 3000 feet would be ideal.

I was looking at Junipero Serra Peak, but the drive might be a bit longer than I was hoping for.
