Ascent Trip Report

I found Mrs. White (the owner of Garnes Knob) asleep in a lawn chair in her yard. She was quite charming, and encouraged me to drive my Jeep in from the gate on the highway. I parked at a second gate about 0.15 mi. from the hp coordinates according to GPS. Only problem was the heat--high 80s in both temperature and humidity. Glad to be back to my air conditioned vehicle after my short triumphant ascent.
