Ascent Trip ReportI was flying blind on this one as I did not have a map. But I had a few hours to kill before meeting Greg at Pike's so I figured I'd going dumpster diving and do some really lame COHPs. I did have the directions in Covill's book but since this lacks a map or a good description I was quite unsure of what was going on. Good directions to get to the COHP but I felt blind without good information on where the county line was. I visited the area to the SE of the intersection. Sprawl is now reaching this area and the traffic was fairly heavy. The area was fenced and some cows were hanging out. I'm not convinced that the highest ground is to the SE of the intersection especially if you look as the mytopo map seems to encompass a bit of ground to the N of the road or on the road itself. Although again you get into the question of what is natural ground and even then it is pretty flat. Whatever. I'm counting it for now but I may go back to this one. This is the sort of "peak" that makes me think COHPing is incredibly stupid. But at the same time, I must admit that my obsessive-compulsive side gets a bit of satisfaction out of ticking these dumpsters off.
