Bagged all three of the Tramonto peaks today. The chute ascent to the middle one required some audible "You can do its!". Found a new route over to the tallest peak, 2448 that you can see from my route that avoids a nasty descent from the middle peak.

Heard my first rattlesnake of the year at the 2448 saddle. FROZE but never saw it.

A good day of scrambling...

This is a good example of the fact that hikes don't necessarily have to be epic to be fun. I'd been staring at this peak since I moved into the new house. Today I summitted it. I will say it is very steep to the top and combined with some of the loosest scree I've been on. It's the little pea gravel granite sized pieces that are just a slip and slide. You might want to bring your trekking poles, as I wish I'd had mine.

It has been 2 and a half years since I last hiked Tramonto Peaks, far too long! Modified my original route to follow the trail from the first saddle north to the second saddle and skipped peak 2365. Took a different route up to peak 2448 which was really steep but pretty solid. Came back down on my original route to the west, which was far worse getting off the top with big loose rocks looking like they would trap me at the first opportunity. Followed the ridgeline to the old jeep road that eventually leads to the water tower. Trail back from there was pretty faint. Didn't feel hot until the very end. I did see three other people out on the trail this morning within the last mile.

Grus and Views
Haven't been up on these hills in a while even though I live extremely close. Today I decided to remind myself why.

The trail up is easy to follow, but composed mostly of grus, those little pebbles, sand and gravel that can send your feet down the trail at a high rate of speed, followed closely by your posterior bumping along at equally the same rate. Nope, I didn't succumb to the grus today, but mostly due to luck and not my catlike reflexes, those having departed many moons ago.

The views from the tops of the peaks here are the reward for the ascent. You tend to linger and gaze a bit longer too knowing the gruesome grus laden descent awaiting.
