Ascent Trip Report

For those with a serious 4x4, you could drive to top, not recommended for others who care about the underside of their vehicle. Lots of washouts and rocks. But then you would miss the fun of hiking open balds and a road in 90 degree heat.

Some nice views (ignore the cell phone tower farm) to south toward Mount Pleasant.
