Ascent Trip Report

Almost a drive-up, parked at the road end, right at pb spot, but found out the higher ground is behind a fence. Fortunately, the fence is not a long one. I backed off a little to reach one end of the fence and set off to find any possible high point, it ends up to be very close to the "triangle" on topo map but I did not find the benchmark. Some construction was going on, the pine woods is gone, tree stomps everywhere.
