Tecate Peak

After having driven up Otay Mountain, we drove over toward Tecate Peak. Once at the border, we drove along the wall, passing a Border Patrol truck. We chatted with him for a bit letting him know our plans to drive up the summit. We found our way onto the correct road and began our climb. This road is rougher than the road up Otay. We parked at the summit and took our photos.


I am an avid peak bagger, sometimes backpacker, and former sea-kayaker living in San Diego. In 2019, I became the third person to complete the San Diego 100 Peak Challenge. Not stopping with that accomplishment, I set my sights on the harder San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list, which I completed in 2021. In addition, I have conquered several Six-Pack of Peaks challenges (SoCal, San Diego, and Arizona-Winter). Beyond attempting the San Diego Sierra Club 100 Peak list a second time, I am looking forward to exploring new summits and new adventures across the southwest.
