Ascent Trip Report

Started at elkton at the lowest elevation that didn't require lots more running. Old baltimore pike had a decent shoulder and the traffic wasn't so bad. Hill out of elkton was decent and then nothing until turning on iron hill rd. steep climb up to the tower at the top of the hill through the development. Ran around to the back of the fence and then up a bunch of piles of dirt that didn't seem natural. On the run back down the hill the view to the south was nice. First time I could appreciate the prominence.
