Ascent Trip Report

Second attempt to the true summit of Jay Mountain, armed with more information knowing that Jay has more than one peak. Stood on lots of peaks, went up and down up and down crags, across the long ridge, over various types of terrain (scrub, sandy, flat rock, ledges, mud, a few minor streams and finally, past all of this, found the geodetic marker for the true summit, so I think we got it covered. True summit is not the highest point.
