Ascent Trip Report

I followed County Highpointer Mike Schwartz' directions, but didn't find the upward track 100 feet up the road from the church parking lot. Perhaps it had been obscured by weed growth. I bushwhacked up the hillside and picked up the road a couple of hundred feet later. On the way down I followed the slightly longer winding path of the road.
