Ascent Trip Report

We approached from the west, Jackson, TN .... it's basically a drive-up to 2 Areas.

AREA 1
From I40, exit 93, we drove south on #152 for .75 miles to a left on #412, .6 miles right on Crawford Springs Road, 1.12 miles come to the crest-of-road (telephone pole on right), the HP is to the right in the open woods at 30 yards.
We parked 100 yards before the road crest at a track to the right for an easy walk-up, my spot was at GPS 35.69942,-88.60986.
A policeman stopped to ask if we were in trouble.

AREA 2
From Area 1 we drove 200 yards down the road to the track on the right. The high ground is straight ahead in the open woods at 40 yards, my GPS at my spot 35.69727,-88.60947.

"I'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT JACKSON, EVER SINCE MEMPHIS TOWN,

TAKE IN MADISON COUNTY, EAST OF TOWN."
