Ascent Trip Report

My experience matched Bob Schwab's excellent CHP trip report--177 to Caddo Lane and bushwhack up. Nobody home, but I assumed it was OK because Bob got permission with no trouble. I didn't see the path up at first and clumbered about in the weeds before I found the track up. Did pick up a tick--watch out for the little buggers.
