Ascent Trip ReportFrom Rt. 19 north of Mt. Morris I took Mason Ridge Rd. to Wilden Hill Rd. and then right on an unsigned dirt rd. at the top of the hill. In another quarter mile I turned right on another dirt road (Glade Rd. according to my map). About 100 yards in I spotted a steep track running up hill as the road starts to head down. The track probably dates from the construction of a power line heading over the hill here. At the top an old trail heads off to the right. It's partly overgrown, in some spots with thick clumps of nasty thorn bushes. but it follows the ridge line towards the hp. I headed over one knob, down into a small col and then up to the hp knob. The last 100 yards to the hp coordinates involved an unpleasnt bushwhack through heavy underbrush and thorns. While I had long pants and long sleeves I got numerous small guts on my hands. Next time I'll pack some work gloves.
