It was hot today first off. I parked in Blackhawk to get a few miles on my legs before the climb. I was pretty nervous about the climb since I am a dedicated flat-lander. It went well, the south gate entrance is pretty relentless climbing, however it was shaded in parts. I love Mt. Diablo!
I dropped into my triple about 50 meters from the summit. Doh! I can't wait till next time!
