Ascent Trip Report

We followed an old road from the south, now closed to vehicles. This road connects to a newer powerline access road, then bends left (west) and continues up to the top. Maps show the track ends below the top but in truth, the track goes all the way up and even continues down the other side. The last few hundred feet were very steep.

For the descent, we walked the powerline access road out to FR-117 and back to the car, covering about the same distance.
