Easy but beautiful climb.
Drizzle, fog, no views, much like Matthew found. I also got lost and did more miles than intended. Seems to be part of the initiation. I even convinced myself that my compass was pointing south when it was pointing north. Not a very clever boy am I. Trip Report.
Hot ascent on a very hot summer day - great views, one rattlesnake. Jogged back down in about 20 minutes. Don't miss Lime Kiln State Park while you are in the area - 2 short walks are worth the entry fee.
Awesome view of the coast!
A longer than intended dayhike via the Kirk Creek trail from Hwy 1. A sunny start to the day turned to rain/snow/thick fog at the top, so no summit views for me... In the fog, I somehow contrived to get turned around on my descent, and ended up deciding to follow the Coast Ridge/Nacimiento-Fergusson roads down--35 miles, probably close to 7000 ft gain for the day! Oops.
First time was with my friend Wei and my brother Tony. Spectacular views of the ocean. You can see the Highway 1 bridge crossing the outlet of Limekiln Creek, almost a mile below.
