Ascent Trip Report

Got a late afternoon start but it was just a 4 mile round trip, which included a trip up to the TV/Cell tower site. The DOC has changed the summit sign so that the wrong elevation is not on it anymore. Encountered only 2 other people on the A.T. section. Took the Orange Diamond Ridge and Picnic Trails back to avoid the snow field I trudged through on the way up.
