Ascent Trip Report

After coming down from Wildcat Knob, I followed Duncan Ridge Road south to its intersection with a forest service road, and followed it west until it took a sharp turn back to the northeast. Then headed southwest along the wide ridge over the first false summit and up to the higher point. Was a very dense bushwhack at points, but it wasn't too difficult to drop of to the north or south to avoid the dense brush and briers at points.
