Ascent Trip Report

I followed Ron Tagliapietra's route but encountered thick brush in the drainage. Once I got to the logging road, it was easy enough to find the high ground. There is a deer stand nearby, so be careful.

In hindsight, Michael Schwartz's route is probably easier. There are two logging roads off Chaplin Road and I wasn't sure which to follow, but I think they intersect near the 135-meter summit contour.
