Ascent Trip Report

I entered Aliquippa by heading east from I-376 to Monaca Rd. and then veered off on Straub Farm Rd. This bypasses a mini-farm and winds through woods to a gated track up to the inevitable microwave towers. The gate is posted, but clearly locals don't take that too seriously. At the top I found a string of Christmas lights, chairs, log benches, piles of beer cans, and a kettle with four mugs of tea someone left behind.
