Ascent Trip Report

An easy climb steeply up to awesome views by a gritty ledge (service) road which starts out as a field road, turning to follow the field road to avoid the power-line-cut going straight; at the summit, I walked the open ledge to find there the Mt Waldo Benchmark, Geocache & more views. Once back at the open summit, I met a pair of mountain bikers just descending southward from their (service) road ascent, spotting them later at their trail head with my driving back along Tyler Lane suggesting their use of bike trails looping mountaintop about.
