Ascent Trip Report

Ascent started out bad..forgot my hiking boots and ended up ascending the peaks in some cheap deck shoes..ouch.
Following the directions on summitpost to the trailhead through Whispering Pines, walked up what may have been a passable road at one point, but is now very washed out and overgrown. Still, it was apparent enough to follow to the East Cobb Mtn summit. I imagine the road servicing the towers connect to the middle summit, which is the actual Lake Co prominent point, but we never found out and instead descended through the small canyon directly between them. It required some bushwacking. Unfortunately, ended up abandoning the southwest peak because we lost light. Too forested on top for much of a view.
