Ascent Trip Report

From Edinberg Rte 4 North, quick left onto Military Road going past Airport Road to a turning Y in road, go left onto Sand Lake Road to its gated end. Road was plowed beyond with enough snow for snowmobilers and their Oehmer Mtn club. Snowshoed road to Ball Diamond following a heading North along road and into woods at that point. Though warm enough day, the crust held me and my fanny pack up along a near straight path to summit with just a couple of short steep tree grabbing scrambles up. Many snowy summits seen across to SE for resting / descending views.
