Ascent Trip Report

I took Pa. 56, Round Top Rd., Cresswell Rd., Myers Rd. to a dead end.

This area is part of a strip mine. It looks like they've pushed some of the slag onto the hp mound with bulldozers. I got GPS readings well above 1940. It's a surprisingly steep and prominent mound. The area is posted and the owner came to see what I was doing. He wants anyone else to ask for permission to enter.
