Was curious about the mountain.   Looked up on Google Earth and found this picture...   It is definitely not San Jacinto Mountain in Texas!

Wonder if this is a public accessible climb?

Very glad their cell phone worked..

You have to admit that's a cool pic of San Jacinto Mt attached to the story.

Oh no, that's an easy climb... Just climb into the elevator and ride it to the top!
