Ascent Trip Report

This is the only real interesting peak located in the park that i could see from the review of the USGS topography contours, but it is not that interesting getting there. There were some interesting limestone formations near the top to climb through but no views at all from the top to i call it a rating of 6 to climb. Did this for excercise while doing business in the Huntsville area and visiting our Huntsville office. Easy drive from downtown.
