Ascent Trip Report

Dang that old road was overgrown! If you are standing at the cross on Lyn Lowry, there is a tree that has been cut to look like a chair to your left. Believe it or not, go into that brush directly n front of the chair. It’s a steep drop into all that. After about 15 minutes you join an old road. There is a man way to the summit after about 1.5 miles.
