Ascent Trip ReportParked at Black Mtn shut-in on Rt E, the easiest way across stream. I found an old ATV trail that ran into a much better ATV . That trail leveled out and was moving northeast away from the summit. I bushwhacked to the top with help of GPS. There were large areas of poison ivy, which increased towards the top. The summit was covered with poison ivy and some briars. Absolutely hated climb only because of poison ivy, without which the climb would have been fantastic.
