Ascent Trip Report

I followed the same route as Bob Schwab. The house with the drive appears abandoned. I was able to get my Jeep up behind it a ways (after striking out knocking on nearby doors for permission--nobody home). Nothing has changed from the previous report. The top is really just one area with just a bit of roll between the two close spots listed in the data base. More of a real hill than the majority of Midwestern chp's.
