Ascent Trip Report

Boy did I screw this up. Attempted this with Coach Tickner, and trying to get to High Rock, which I now know is coincident with the radio tower. However, I had the wrong coordinates and we were looking for this peak on the wrong side of the gravel road that turns off from Rt 1. Thought we might have found it with a large outcropping of rocks, but we weren't even close. Going to give it another go in a day or two.
