Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the gate just south of Falcon Cove Rd. Gate is signed for non-motorized recreation. The trail on the abandoned Arch Cape Mill Rd, starts on the hillside to the right, just before the road ends. The summit trail is to the left at a T intersection. Some brush and logs on a steep hill to get to the higher summit(s). We couldn't tell which rock at the spot elevation was higher so we tagged both. We then traversed over to the NE closed contour. It's a dramatic knob sticking out at the top of the cliff.
