Ascent Trip Report

I parked at a large house overlooking a meadow on the north flank of the peak. The friendly owners happily gave me access and welcomed me to come back. A lumbering or jeep track heads up the meadow from their house and winds around the peak nearly to the top leaving only a short bushwhack across the wooded and very gently sloping top. I bushwhacked across one dogleg on the way up and another on the way down. No views on top but some on the way up.
