Ascent Trip Report

afternoon hike up from Irving Road. Ran into a landowner's grandson working on a farm truck out in a field. With a little discussion about peakbagging he allowed me access. He informed me that pretty much the entire mountain is private property and I wouldnt find any public routes to the top. My first idea was to go up a 4x4 road I found on the southeast ridge off of Cove Road about half a mile past the junkyard, but there was a truck parked at the beginning of that particular road blocking entry and I had no idea what kind of reaction to expect if I came across whoever was parked there.
