Ascent Trip Report

As was planning my Trip to Paddy Mt. I noticed this peak was close by and it's on the Pa. top 100 prominence peaks. From the spot where you would turn sharply left on Paddy Mt. Rd. go straight ahead to Rupp Hollow Rd. I parked at the closest GPS reading, 0.4 mi. from the hp coordinates. Steep, lots of rocks, lots of brush; harder than I expected and another dense flat top. I slashed for a while on top, not sure I got to the highest spot.
