Ascent Trip ReportCoHP – CHRISTIAN COUNTY, KENTUCKY
PILOT ROCK – WESTERN LINER
Refer to the trip report for Todd County. Continue west from the tower footings that mark the summit of Todd County to find the declining elevation and the short drop that announces the county line area. I carefully climbed down to the lower rocks, although it was easily jumpable by younger, more nimble folks like the 3 boys. I looked around and immediately recognized the location from the photo that is posted on Peakbagger.com. Glaringly noticeable was the amount of graffiti that adorned the rocks in this area. There was plenty of graffiti all around the rest of the summit rocks, but this spot seemed to be a “taggers’ paradise”. It was nearly impossible to see any clean rock surface.
With GPS in hand, I located what I believed was a point on the county line. But basically, if you wander around the lower rock surface, you will tag the liner Christian County CoHP. When you are satisfied, you can safely say “been there, done that”. You have just completed a near-twofer.
Return up the rocks and back across the summit area of Todd County, and return to the base of Pilot Rock the same way you came.
