Ascent Trip Report

From US 19 S I took Old Turnpike Rd. to Crites Mt. Rd. (right) (apparently Ken Oeser took Old Turnpike Road from the North to the same intersection while I started on 19 SW of the intersection) which winds around until you are about 0.1 mi. from the hp coordinates, according to GPS. It comes to a T intersection with a road to a mine headed right (and a steady stream of big trucks going in and out, park carefully) and the gated track up to the hp just a few feet to the left from the intersection. 6 min. total up and down ( I saw no reason to dawdle in a not so scenic spot) from my parking spot by the gate. Nothing to recommend the hp to someone who is not a chp'er.
