Ascent Trip Report

What I found confusing was not the ground conditions in Minden but the directions in the other Trip Reports. This is an easy one to get to ..... followed by a nasty very short bushwack.

From downtown Minden, intersection of Hwy#79/#159 with the Water Tank and the Presbyterian Church on its corner, we drove north on #159 for 6.84 miles to a right turn on FR829, 1.68 miles parked the van at a crest-in-the-road .... to the immediate left (north) is the high ground, 100 yards ahead to the left is a lesser road.

I tramped/fought-my-way in the high ground with woods of tall pines and extremely dense/thorny underbrush .... really nasty stuff, luckily I had-on my Snake Gaiters. Satisfied with my effort but impossible to find "the" spot, its in the vicinity of 32.70377,-93.24079, 40 yards from the road.

From here we moved on to Lincoln Parish High Point.
