Ascent Trip Report

Unfortunately, there is no access to summit from Kip's Castle County Park which is adjacent alongside on ridgeline but well worth visiting. Luxury high-rise condominiums, Claridge House sits on the actual summit but still just below beyond the old fenced cliff edge at highest rocks an 8-point buck stood his ground while does ran. An easy walk up Claridge Drive sidewalk from King's Supermarket lot.
