While spared by the recent and very close Kincaid fire, there is ample evidence of past fire fighting efforts along the route.  With a wide road and consistent grade most of the way, this was a fairly easy and fast climb.  The most challenging part of the hike is probably crossing the road safely – the parking area is across the street from the trailhead, and traffic speeds past in both directions.

For a summit known for its extreme winds, we caught it on a particularly gentle day, and we were able to linger at the top to enjoy the views.  On the return we also stopped to observe a rock climbing class which was underway.
