We bagged two distant peaks on the periphery of Morgan Territory and Mt. Diablo. Despite the risk of mid-80 temperatures on a hike with 5-6kft of elevation, a constant wind (more than a breeze) kept us cool. Lots of poison oak at the first summit worried several people, but everyone picked their way to the top. The long, pounding downhill near the end, followed by a surprising amount of uphill right before the conclusion, preserved the level 5 rating.
