South Mountain is a very ugly slog on Green Diamond aka Simpson lands.  But the view at the top almost makes the slog worth it.  With 2,400 feet elevation gain in 8 miles round trip, it's a pretty good winter time work out too.

The gate was above the inversion and we had blue skies for the entire hike.  We headed back down just before the sun set.  Neither of us wanted to go back into the clouds and the smog, so we drug it out as long as we could.

It definitely looks like the view is worth it!
