I found it while hiking up a couple of Milpitas hills. Its about 1.5cm long.

Here are a few not so good pics, it wouldn't stop moving.

The red tips on the claws, the overall shape/size of the animal and the size of it's appendages realtive to it's body size... also the locality fits in it's distribution range. All characteristics point to Vaejovidae. I would think Paruroctonus or Serradigitus.
