Ascent Trip Report

- parked a dirt parking (found that owner's permission require to park on my drive out)
- forgot to save topo map with GPS tracks, followed the dashed trail on MAPS.ME
- a lot of scrambles along N ridge, some class 3 but super easy, with some overgrown bush.
- better view along S ridge, followed a faint trail to E, found a ruined shelter at 5480.
- I thought it is a legal approach to SP, but no, to a private house instead. I saw a car on the driveway.
- exit to Pottertown Gap, road hike from there.
