Ascent Trip Report

For so many candidate points, I was surprised to learn that the points were all very close to public roads or in the roads or on fields or woods next to woods. Surprising how many were not behind the typical fences with no trespassing signs, one usually encounters. Several to the north are likely remnants of hills excavated for developing the roadway and thus, the closed contours are now bifurcated double candidates from the road cuts.
