Ascent Trip ReportWe had lodging at Forres Park Guest House in Mavis Bank. They were very helpful with providing introduction to our guide, John, and even provided breakfast at 4AM. John was invaluable at navigating to the trailhead in our rental 4x4 vehicle. The road-track is very steep, rocky, and rutted, and very dangerous in a couple of sections where recent storms have eroded the edges of the track; I cannot emphasize too much that this is a precarious drive with a standard 4x4 rental vehicle.
We arrived at the trailhead at 6:30 AM with the sun still rising behind the mountain; thus the hike up to Portland Gap was shaded throughout...more later
