  • Superb resource right in the city, I've hiked it numerous times. I'm also climbing again. My YouTube channel has a video of me rappeling down "The Potato" while holding the phone in my hand, never again! I was seriously insulted at the end of a long hard day of training, by some lady with a bunch of kids as if I was some sort of threat, not paying you any attention, giving you a wide birth, and actually having walked "past" you. If you have some sort of issue with tired old men on public property stay home, dont insult me, use me as a training tool whatever it was, better yet, you should not be having kids. The climbing ethic around here is to tread softly and shut ones mouth. Plenty of gems and adventures to be had. Keep your damn kids away from me, you're nothing special.
  • Great hike! It's very doable, but expect about 40-50 mins to the top. Great view from peak
