Ascent Trip Report

Starting at Bald Mountain Road, follow the power lines up to the summit. Walked around the top of the mountain and checked out some views. Almost completely open rock. Good to do on a spring or fall day or overcast due to full exposure.

Ran in to a couple of gentlemen who had just learned that there had been an airplane crash back in the 1960's and the wreckage was still somewhere on the mountain.
