Ascent Trip Report

As easy bushwack on sand dunes ..... .3 miles, 30 minutes RT.

At the community of Frisco, intersection US12 and Billy Mitchel Road with Shell Station on corner (Mile Marker 67.6), we drove east on Billy Mitchel Road .1 mile and parked the car.
I bushwacked the sand dunes northeast approx 250 yards to the wooded summit with no views. The woods are moderately dense with some briars however I zig-zagged my way for an easy wack. I chose my spot at the obvious HP, GPS 35.23416, -75.62276.
