Write-up by Peter and Robert -- Pictures by Keung
Last week we went to Rose Peak from Del Valle, this week we went there from Sunol. Vigorous post-hike debate ensued about which hike was tougher. Elevation-wise, last week was harder, but the weather was warmer this week and there much less shade, so I'll call it a tie. Two good level 4+ hikes in a row. I'm running out of ways to get to Rose Peak, so I'll have to come up with something different next time.
Robert asked who was going to do the write-up, so he gets tagged to do the honors ... also Honorable Mention to Thomas for guarding my beer at Sunol.
