A friendly new reader tipped me off to this little bit of South Pas hiking history. It’s on Monterey, about a half block east of Foremost Liquor. I couldn’t see anything more than overgrown weeds but apparently, somewhere beyond this (blocked!)entrance 272 wooden steps lead all the way up the hill, topping out on Alta Vista. At least at one point they did. The chain link fence renders the whole area off limits now and my reader said the last time he climbed the stairs was back in 1980. Anyone else?
