Ascent Trip Report

We turned right on Kane Road and drove until we just underneath the HP up the ridge. We started going downhill a bit, so we stopped and explored a little bit...which turned up nothing. So we turned around and drove to the intersection of Kane Road and Kane-Ridge road. It looked to be a private road to different residences. We parked at the intersection and I walked up the Kane-Ridge road and to the first right. I came across a gate with no signs. I went around the gate and very distance later went into the brush for about 20 feet. This is the high point according to state land cal topo. There are conflicting maps as to the boundary and this was my best assertion as to the HP.
