Late December - a great time of year to ride Diablo.
Threat of rain... fizzled out.
Threat of cold... all talk.
Threat of wind... neutralized.
Threat of huge waves from the Pacific... not big enough to get us.
We had the whole Mountain to ourselves almost. Didn't see any other riders until two fast guys passed me on The Wall. On my descent though I saw a lot of climbers.
