Rob V., Justin Lee and I climbed Mt. Diablo via
the Back Creek Trail.
It was cold-ish (45-50) and there was some
skanky hoar frost on the grass in shady areas.
Justin set a blistering pace on the way up.
There was an excellent view of the snowy Sierras from the summit.
My knees hurt on the way down, but less than usual.
