Ascent Trip Report

From US 49 in Ulysses I turned successively on Main, Academy, Lehman Hollow, Downey, and White Knoll--several miles of generally good quality dirt roads but quite muddy today. Eventually this got me to the locked gate just off White Knoll Rd. about a half mile north of the hp. The road got me to within 0.15 miles of the hp coordinates. Apparently some previous visitors did not find this bushwhack particularly difficult. It probably depends on the time of year; I'd guess it's easier in the winter. But I found the brush extremely dense with thickly grown thorn bushes nearly everywhere. I had intended to bushwhack from this spot to the other county hp candidate on White Knoll about 0.6 mi. SW from this spot but abandoned that thought as I got quickly scratched up. Neither of the White Knoll chp candidates were pleasant hikes.

My statistics below include the abandoned bushwhack tot he second point.
