Ascent Trip ReportIf you are looking at this peak you are an aspiring NJ1Ker. There could be no other reason to climb Upper Pohatcong Mountain. There are some trip reports on the NJ1K site, and I have little to add. I followed the usual route from the Rockport Game Farm, skirting the posted signs along the ridge. I will note that the thorns weren't terrible in April, however, I can fully believe the tales of horror I have read about this hill from those who have climbed in the summer and early autumn. I still bled a a few times on this. The summit coordinates from acme mapper led me to within 30' of the USGS benchmark, which is dated 1935 and set into a concrete base.
