"The back way over the Contra Costas"

This is the way that you can take if the Caldecutt Tunnel is closed. It will take you all the way up to Grizzly Peak where you can take Fish Ranch Road back down to the Contra Costa side of the Caldecutt. Unless it is totally closed it is unlikely to actually save you much time, however, you will probably be moving the whole time which is more enjoyable than sitting in traffic. Also it is very woodsy and soon there will be no houses.

Claremont overall is a residential street with large Victorian houses, often shared by groups of Cal students or professors. The highlights are the corner of College where you can find great places to eat and a nice bar called the Graduate--and, the historic Claremont Hotel--a white giant that sits up at the edge of the hills. If you can afford it, this is a great place to stay. It is probably the premier hotel in Berkeley where star prospective faculty are sometimes put up to be wined and dined.
