Ascent Trip ReportI expected the buckthorn and over grown trail but the leaves of a certain type of plant along most of the route had a very sticky resin or sap on them. I was covered with it by the time I reached the peak. The summit had thousands of flies buzzing about, some of them seemed to like the resin that was all over my scratched up flesh. My brother and his dog gave up after 1.5 miles. Drank 2 liters of water just to cover 4 miles, which took 3 hours!
