    Except for my 4 chain drops, I had a blast with the experienced climbers.

      Fred- you were too far ahead, otherwise you would have picked up your chain for you.

    Is there still construction that causes massive traffic?

      The traffic jam awhile ago was due to an accident on hwy 17. A lot of drivers were taking Hwy 9 to get over the hill. There is a traffic light which is right after redwood gulch/Hwy 9. An alternative route is to take Hwy 280 to Foothill/Stevens Canyon, then up Redwood Gulch and right on Hwy 9. Its not any faster than taking 280 to 85/DeAnza and then up Pierce Road to Hwy 9 but less traffic. Hope you'll join us tmrw.

    Hi- Question about the start place. The above link states Intersection of Highways 9 and 35 (Skyline Blvd), Saratoga, CA (map)......The map link goes to a place I am not familiar with...is it correct?

    • Julie

      There is a parking lot at the intersection of hwy 35 and hwy 9. Where are you coming from?
