Ascent Trip Report

I met Alan Bernier on Kirby Hill Rd. at the state line 1/4 mi. from the hp coordinates. We walked past the bend in the road and then bushwhacked. We hit the listed coordinates put continued past to the stone state line marker. It is definitely a bit higher than the listed spot. We continued across the state line up to the nearby high point.My distance and elevation gain below include both.
