Ascent Trip ReportBagged as part of SB6K challenge. See my 8/30/20 ascent of Waterrock Knob for the full trip report.
Just across from where the road up to the Waterrock Knob overlook spits from the BRP, you'll see the obvious unofficial, yet maintained trail dip into the woods. The ascent up Yellow Face is short, but is steep and overgrown in spots. The summit is a large, flat clearing that is filled with thorny weeds. We spent some time looking for a natural high point as it in not very obvious. Just off the left side of the trail when ascending the peak there is a large rock that appeared to be the high point.
