Ascent Trip Report

Land a boat, if you have one, near the lighthouse. Sucktastic schwacking on the lower gentler slopes is followed by moss and more moss as the island gets steeper. The upper half of the mtn is OK but it ain't worth going through the bottom half to get there. Unless you are a hardy island bagger type, don't do it.
