How are you? The hike and the short jog up the tower are worth the effort. The view of the Sierra Crest from there (especially in the early morning) is just superb and hiking the hills on a cool, early spring day is wonderful. We got to the base and who didn't show up there but Dave Baldwin ! Said had a time on his hands so decided to hike up there alone. Dave took the picture of us climbing the pinnacle. Small world!
