Ascent Trip Report

Honestly, I felt fairly uneasy while on this hike. I was trespassing and didn't like where I parked. I'm unsure the route others have taken to get up there. At the beginning of Coyote Hollow Rd you'll come across a sign for the Glens of Ironduff. It states No Trespassing. I continued almost to the end before I got to the second to last house. There's no good place to park here that is out of sight of the third to last house, so I drove my truck off the north side of the road on an overgrown road into a wooded lot. There's no good place to turn around but I was able to manage. I probably wouldn't recommend parking here without a 4wd that you don't mind getting scratched up by saplings. I started hiking up and almost immediately came to a huge, will-draining patch of briers...the nasty kind. I pulled out my hand snips and cut my way through, all the while trying to hurry. I was fairly certain at this point that Peter, Rick and Vince chose a route more wisely than I. The briers subsided around 3,100'. There's a road on the ridgeline and a connecting road that comes in from the west. That road had some vehicle traffic on it within the past couple weeks or so. Right before I got back to my truck a car passed by going towards the end of the road. It didn't return so I guess it went to one of the two houses up the road. I left quickly.
