Mt. Diablo

Lets drive up a big mountain. 1,100-ish metres vertical in the car, which is the easy way - there were a ton of people struggling up on bikes and getting cheered in by their friends at the top. A cyclist friend of mine says Diablo is shorter but steeper, and with a killer steep bit at the top, compared to it's neighbour Mt. Hamilton. You can also walk on a trail the whole way up, that would be fun to come back and do one day.

On the way up we stopped at Rock City and climbed around on the soft sandstone. So many people have done this that there is a indented ladder of holds all over the rock. We got some great views from the top, and on the way down we did a short hike from Curry point.
