Ascent Trip Report

Came in from Wallace Walker Road. The field road shown on the topo, leaves WW in the middle of a farmhouse complex. We drove just south to where an overgrown road dropped into the ravine. The only sign said "No Hunting". Follow the road down to the east of Pt 1534. Turn right up draw to the west of Pt 1534 to intersect the topo road at the saddle. Turn left and follow it to its end. Do not drive in fields, planted or not. Roads were fairly smooth but heavily overgrown. BM has a metal witness post alongside it.
