Ascent Trip Report

An easy uphill walk to Jones Hill Road's height-of-land, then a 1/4 mile bushwhack (microspikes on) across a mostly hard crust which did at times posthole to in over my knee, but was lucky going slow using poles helping to bear my weight, seeking out the hard crust where like sun & wind had hardened surface; at this time of year, I had decent views along the way east / southeast to reach views and a hunter's tree stand at summit, with the only man tracks seen made by me.
