Ascent Trip Report

It was a overcast day but warm for the ascent. We parked by the old mailbox at the entrance to the old farmhouse. It was a brisk walk that involved some scrambling over white chalky ground. The warnings about rattlesnakes are true as we were scared by one on the descent. A beautiful view from the top. Signed the register. Our first American High Point!
