Ascent Trip Report

Parked just past the 8 mile marker on Perry Stream Road at a jct with a kiosk and outhouse. Could have driven all the way to the end of the road had I had bigger cajones but I wasn't interested in crossing any more washed out culverts, two of the worst of which were on the final two mile stretch. Several trucks went by indicating it is doable with enough clearance and courage. I turned off the road a tenth of a mile past the 10 mile marker and basically walked due north. The woods were very open but quite muddy, particularly down low. This improved somewhat the higher I climbed. Had difficulty locating the canister as the tree to which it is affixed has fallen over making it partially hidden in all the debris.
