Ascent Trip Report

After the rigors of the Brunswick County HP trek, I was ready for something less engaging.

The northern HP is in the side yard of a suburban home in east Wilmington (2099 Addies Lane). Headed south from there to other HP located in a trailer community on South Ridge Boulevard. The only difficult thing about this "peak" is how to get to the park in the back where the small rise is located. Luckily a kindhearted fella on the way to work guided me through the blocks of streets and pointed out the exact spot. He said lots of crazy people like me come to stand there.
