Ascent Trip ReportSummit marker on pb map is off, make sure to continue along ridge to true hp. From the torys falls parking, i hiked to the reuben mountain trail onto the northeastern shoulder of the mountain. It was a fairly open off trail hike up to the state park boundary and then along the ridge. Where the summit marker is there is sort of a false summit, with outcrops and views down below. But further along the ridge is higher, and after some rock outcrops a loftier summit is attained at the southwest edge of the 1800' contour. Just below summit is fantastic views of cooks wall and the rest of hanging rock, just don't get near the edge. Entire route on state park land.
