Ascent Trip Report

Not the most thrilling hill, unlike Rocky Butte or Mt. Tabor which are great. Ryan Courtney's trip report is hilarious, and accurate; this area is a tiny bit sketchy. The only legal access to the top is from the gate and parking area at the end of 103rd Street, south of Division. I ran into a few people on the ten minute hike and as with me, it wasn't entirely clear what anyone was doing there. One guy was crouching near the high ground and when I said hey he told me he'd been "checking this place out for a while on Google Earth". Right on! I located a benchmark in the woods near a pile of trash. Then I descended and made better use of my afternoon.
