Write-up by Peter
This should probably be called Las Trampas Loops (plural) since half the group went one way and half the other. Group 1 hit Las Trampas Peak, Eagle Peak, Del Amigo, then crossed the road, went up Elderberry to the top of Rocky Ridge and then back down. Group 2 went up and over Rocky Ridge, down to Devil's Hole and back up, down Elderberry, crossed the road, up the other side to Eagle Peak, Del Amigo, and back. Both routes were 13 miles, but the consensus was that Group 2 got the worse hike (or better hike, depending on your persepective).
Honorable mention to Chief for doing half the hike before knee problems forced an early exit. The tequila and hot dogs will just have to wait until Summerfest.
