This 43 y/o fat guy would like to know about how long it took others to climb Diablo. Just wanted to let my wife know when to send out a search party. Thanks.

here are the results from last year's mt. diablo challenge: http://www.doitsports.com/newresults...4590_2006.html

goes from athenian school to summit.

EDIT - as for my own personal time... let's just say i'm not even in the top half.

The slowest people I know can do North Gate Road in about 70 minutes; and probably 10 minutes faster on the easy side. Fat people usually skip the Summit.

FYI - cell phone reception is pretty good up there.

I'm not too terribly fat, but I'm big and a mediocre climber. It takes me about 1-1/2hrs by myself, closer to 2hrs with the wife. I only ever climbed from Southgate.

It only takes 15 minutes or so to get back down......
