Ascent Trip Report

Another bust of a sort. This is a pretty crappy public place. The entrance has a sketchy way about it as 103 Aveneue unceremoniously just terminates past a house with a million no trespassing signs and cameras at a gate with confusing no parking signs. You can park there just not in the middle of the night?
There was a beat up old car in the parking lot with someone sleeping it!

I made haste going up the paved road and then it ends in an open space with some well used trails to the summit. I passed a nice couple that did not look like someone that would jump and me and rob me so I was relived but the entire experience had a sketchy feel to it. There are no views and the peak is anticlimactic.

temperature Kept going up about 74F still wanting to complete many nearby hikes before the 105F plus temperature got there.
