Ascent Trip ReportI took a rather unorthodox approach, after missing what I think is the right road. I came in from the northwest, driving Black Mountain Lane - which is passable for a passenger car - for a mile or two before parking where an old jeep track takes off to the right. I followed it to a saddle where I just followed the ridge. Clearly not the best way, but it got me to the top.
