Car definitely did most of the work on this one.
Nice views. Pretty day.
On the way to Diablo's summit, via the Regency route.
After Mount Diablo. Short, easy scramble.
On 4 summits loop had to get this in too. Pretty fun.
Before you get to the end of Rhine Canyon trail (which ends at a park boundary) you can go up the steep side of Diablo adjacent to Rhine Canyon. Multiple rock outcroppings fun to climb and explore before reaching Devil's Pulpit.
Nice to tag on the way up or down from the summit.
After summiting Diablo. Fun little outcropping, but after about 10 minutes of climbing, all routes are exhausted.
Drove up then did a trail run loop that also included North Peak and Diablo. Smog obscured the views to the central valley.
Relatively new to climbing with hands. This was a fun place to play around for a bit while visiting diablo and practice scrambling up a fun little rock. The chert is really tactile too, chert is a great rock!
A little girl saw us climbing around and insisted her non-amused daddy climb the rock too.
Looks like there is some more good scrambling underneath it, would be fun to come up from underneath.
We hiked up from Mitchell Canyon in the morning. Ben and I decided to ascend the final approach via Devils Pulpit, while Rad and Al hiked up the road. We beat them.
I parked at the Devils Elbow and hiked first up to Mt. Diablo's summit then followed the Fire Intepretive Trail around to the Devils Pulpit. After climbing it I found a use trail that cut back down to the Devils Elbow. Loved the lichen encrusted rock formations in the area and the abundant wildflowers and amazing views.
Saw this little fun crag from the top of Diablo and had to know what the view was like on it. Very fun bouldering crag.
