Beautiful scenery on the way to north peak trail. The final slope to the peak is strenuous and dangerous. Need lot of water and there are no place to rest on the north peak. Just be prepared!! :)

It was a little frustrating to go up and down on repeat instead of mostly up, but you get to see both diablo and north summit. Bring LOTS of water.
