Ascent Trip ReportFrom the Parking Area at Lake Askoti I hiked south on the blue trail towards the road crossing at Rt.106, instead of crossing the road I took a left and started bushwhacking, headed uphill to the east along the ridge line of Rockhouse mntn. after a false summit or two I came upon the high point boulders and took a short break. Broke out the compass and shot an azimuth for the lake at 296* NW. Hiked mostly down hill finding the marked stream and followed that mostly to the lake and trail which led to the PA. The weather was good, remaining ground snow was soft at 3-4inches in spots but easy walking. Mostly open BW'ing except for the thick rhododendron patch just after leaving the summit.
