Ascent of Black Mountain on 2011-05-16
|Date:||Monday, May 16, 2011|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||1502 ft / 457 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI parked in a little pull-out spot along County Road 427, immediately south of where it meets Hwy. E. I walked west along Hwy. E a bit, trying to find a good place to enter the woods for my ascent of Black Mountain. The summit is in Mark Twain National Forest, but there are private inholdings in this area that are posted with No Trespassing signs, so I tried to stay on National Forest land the best I could. I bushwhacked toward the north a bit (aided by GPS) before meeting up with a jeep road, which I followed for most of my ascent.
The jeep road doesn't quite go to the summit, so I bushwhacked for the final five minutes of the ascent, before reaching the wooded, viewless summit. I found the PVC register that Hans Haustein placed here nine years ago, and it was still propped up nicely in a small cairn built atop a boulder. Unfortunately, the register was missing. Now it's just an empty PVC pipe.
While there, I strolled around a bit until I found the USGS marker, which was low to the ground on an outcrop.
I returned to my car along the same route.
I did some running and some hiking, and the round trip took a little less than an hour, including about five minutes at the summit. With the 900' elevation gain, it's a decent workout.
