Ascent Trip Report

Asking for trouble, I chose 9/11 for the day to sneak around the FAA tracking station on top of Sugarloaf Mtn. The only trouble I had, though, was rain. I bushwhacked up (following Edward Earl's instructions on and returned via the road. Sugarloaf BM is on the left side of the gate to the FAA antenna.
