Ascent Trip Report

Another tiny public park but with two gratifying rocky crags to climb to gain the views of the city. One of the best places explored today. The only bummer was the amount of kids all over the rocks. Unlike my other sites today that were full of joggers, dog walkers, and people of all ages, this place was loaded with teenagers like a hangout. Enjoyed the views then off to the last peakbagging summit of the day across the way. The description of an ending scramble is true but barely. IT is a a very easy class 2+ of short distance.
