Ascent Trip Report

8:00 AM quick hike/jog up around several cell/radio towers with one really nice view looking back at the HP of PR Cerro de Punto. At the top the actual HP is not the land the cell tower is planted but a very short bushwhack the top around the cell tower is another 30 feet - great views but no real hike here...jogged down by 8:07 AM very fast....still early before clouds rolled in. The bushwhack is steep with some vines
