Jimmy's a way faster hiker than I am so at about the half way point he blasted out ahead and made it to the top at a little after 10 am-- when I still had another 500 or 600 ft of vertical to go which may have taken me another 20 mins to a half hour. So, I didn't make it to the summit but there'll be other chances.
I drank 2 quarts of water on the hike, and still lost 4 pounds.
Looking at the trail coming down from San Miguel Mtn. Otay Lake, where I hiked last week, on the left in the distance.
