Summer 2015

CJ finally agreed to bike up Montara Mountain with me on June 20.  He made the crux on his first attempt, which is incredibly impressive.

Another cyclist coming up the crux.  The crux is over 20% in a few spots and has a very narrow track gravel between deep ruts.

Their rental is the green house on the left.
This alley was very busy, we met most of the neighbors coming and going in the short time we were there.
