Ascent Trip Report

Short bushwack in a residential district, no obvious HP.

From New Brunswick area of New Jersey travel south on hwy 1, (passing exit on the right to Franklin) for about 9 miles as the road reaches a height of land and a stop light at Sandhills Road ...... large blue tank signed South Brunswick and Mcdonalds on this corner. Turn right on Sandhills Road to Woodgate Drive on the left (pass Sand Forest and Pinter on left). Drive up Woodgate to the 4th/5th house on the left .....the High Point is behind the houses on the wooded higher land, a short/easy bushwack of 50 yards in open hardwoods to no obvious HP. Got permission to cross the private property.
Alternately (on my second visit), one can bushwack westbound in open hardwoods about 200 yards from Sands Hills Road (parked at the church), staying behind the houses on Woodgate Drive.

WE DONT STOP CLIMBING BECAUSE WE GROW OLD ..... WE GROW OLD BECAUSE WE STOP CLIMBING.
