Ascent Trip Report

I read the previous reports, and knew to park at the end of Herman Savage Rd and ask permission. We arrived rather early, so rather than wake up the resident(s), I left a note on the dashboard of the car stating we were hikers (not hunters) as we started a little after 7:30am.

I got a little confused getting to Pilot Ridge (peak). I misinterpreted the previous trip reports regarding Mt. Mary (new name) and which Pilot Peak it was. We ended up hitting the cabin, then Mt. Mary (Pilot SE) before I realized my mistake. Had to backtrack a bit.. Oh well.

It was a great day of hiking covering 17 peaks, 25 miles in 19 hours.
