From Ridge Park Road in Newport Beach, I took the paved service road up past the towers to the man made high point at the end. There were decent views of Newport Beach and the ocean, but the peak itself was uninspiring. Then, I went off the road to the boulder piles that appeared to be the natural high point. I climbed all three nearby boulder piles without finding a benchmark. A weak entry in the Peakbagger database.
