This peak was no joke! Just when you thought you are past the steepest and worst part you're wrong, because it keeps getting worse and steeper. This was the complete opposite of Mount Woodson as we hardly saw anyone on the way up, and after an hour of being on the peak resting more and more bigger groups kept showing up. But everyone was respectful and had good trail etiquette so it was a pleasant day. While I hated Mount Woodson (the last peak I did) I absolutely loved El Cajon. Don't think this was my final time up this peak, I'll be back someday.
