Ascent Trip ReportDrive the road until a tree stops you at 2100. Or further on if that tree is gone. You can certainly drive until the 2440' junction. From here take the mapped road which is overgrown with grass and probably not very driveable. Hike the grassy road until you get near the contours and then simply amble through a little bit of small tight trees and other minor but annoying brush to the top. Top is flat and fairly indistinct and we picked a couple of candidate bumps in the large contour. The tiny second contour felt a little lower but there was no line of sight or other definitive measure. No views.
