BLUE PEAK: Plan 5-6 hours for this very strenuous 11 mile hike with 2700' elevation gain. We'll ascend by the 4 mile Romero canyon trail to Romero saddle, make a 3 mile loop around and over the horn to the west of the saddle, then ascend Blue Peak. We'll return back down Romero Canyon. Bring lunch and plenty of water. Meet behind B of A on upper State St. at Hope Ave. at 9am.
