Ascent Trip Report

I wandered a bit around forest roads in this surprisingly isolated area before finding a suitable parking spot. South of PA 236 I took Richmond Rd. to the village of Rochester Mills. I turned up Julock Rd. a modest dirt and gravel affair. Eventually I turned left on Kinan Rd. and then shortly thereafter on an unsigned rd. headed north. Much of this area appears to be owned by an energy company. I parked at a gate off the main rd. at the crest of the hill. It's posted but it doesn't look like there has been any activity in the area recently. I followed meandering up and down dirt roads, with several wrong turns, as the sun was setting. I made it back to my car with just a faint hint of twilight.
