Ascent Trip Report

Followed 72 to state hwy D. My Garmin said to take a right onto Blanten road. There was just a road sign with a number there (probably 109). I stopped at the house on the corner and a man, who said his name was Sebastion, came out and greeted me. He was very friendly. I asked if he wanted to go with me. We walked dwon that road till we came to a bulldozed road at 37.5517,-90.5518. We started up the steep road and he had to stop and rest every few steps. I realized I would not make it back to my wife in time so I asked if I could go by myself. He said he would be there waiting there for me when I came back. I continued up to 37.5549,-90.5561. Where I found another ATV trail and headed west. This trail eventually ended and I bushwacked the rest of the way to the summit. I found the road on the topo map labeled LOC Approx. Maybe I could have taken that but I bushwacked back down to the other ATV trail I had taken before. Sebastian had gone back to his house. I checked to make sure he was OK.
