Ascent Trip Report

Take NC 115 South from Huntersville, NC and take a left on Gibbon Road. After about 1.5 miles, turn left on Christenbury Road. Follow this road to the center of the heavily developed neighborhood and turn left again on Christenbury Hills Lane. The back yard of the house at 4531 Christenbury Hills Lane is the HP.

When I arrived there was a pool party in full swing. I asked for access from the owner and he became a bit confused about why I wanted to stand on the "High Point". I decided better of and returned to my car. I don't think he and I agreed as to the meaning of the term.
