  • C2C (Catcus to cloud) training hike #4: Sierra Azul mountains in Los Gatos. Kennedy trail to Mt. El Sombroso. Gruelling hills with killer grades (some easily more than 20%). All on fire roads, met a few bikers along the way and folks with dogs. The actual C2C hike will be nowhere near this pace as it's simply unustainable.
