Ascent Trip Report

From Netcong we drove Hwy 46 west to .4 miles past the southwest end of Budd Lake where we turned right on Smithtown Road, .8 miles right on Indian Spring Road, .75 miles left on Cardinal Lane then up to the cul-de-sac. I went to the house on the right, no one home, so I walked/climbed their manicured lawn on the very left of the property, 100 yards straight up the hill to the woods and the HP. I walked the area, tall ferns with rocks and chose my spot at 40.87534,-74.76564.
