    Choose your own adventure rock climbing! Lots of paths and routes, the all go up, but they're not kidding when they tell you to stick to the very center of the ridge (nothing like starting up a chimney and coming eye level to a bolted anchor 5' to your right on the same rock).
    Going down is balls. This would be WAY better as a through hike (leave a bike or 2nd car at the main El Cajon TH).
    I saw ZERO rattlesnakes (hiked from 10:30am to 4:30pm), but I did see not one, not two, but THREE GOLDEN EAGLES soar over my head. Best part of the hike.
    I brought 2L and ran out towards the end. Bring at least 3L. The only shade on the entire hike is under lunch rock.
    The discomfort of feeling sweat run down your legs under your gaiters is worth the protection from the billions of foxtails and evil desert bushes towards the top.
