Ascent Trip Report

I first failed to climb Carroll CoHP a short time ago due to heavy snow and no parking. Glad I waited.
Parked here 39.710183 -76.922698.
Short walk up in the rain. There was a sign last time. No sign about 'newly planted field' but I suspect there will be one here soon (translation walk around, not through the field). I was able to walk briefly across the wet farm field to the pile of rocks and located the 'yingling No2' ref BM on a rock. I suspect in the warmer months the high point may be surrounded by thick briers, good luck. Upon reading older TR's I consider myself lucky so I posted a photo or two.
Sorry, can't explain why my gps tracking went crazy. Should be obvious to follow.
