Hicks South and Mount Umunhum

Bay Area, California, USA

Mountain

Mount Umunhum is named after the local First People's name for hummingbird. The radars (now removed) from USAF atop the concrete cube that remains, let to contamination and the road was closed for many years. Mount Umunhum is one of the four major submits of the Bay Area with Mount TAM, Mount Diablo and Mount Hamilton. Coming from the South, Hicks road is a brutal short warmup climb which then without anytime to catch your breath leads to the long brutal ascent of Mount Umunhum with plenty of 10-15% sections.
