Ascent Trip Report

Yuck. What a BUSHWHACK through thick stuff, and it was wet (rained in the morning). Essentially bushwhacked the "ridge" between houses on both my left and right. Had a few dogs barking on the way in, so bushwhacked out to the road rather than return. What a pain this was.

I would recommend parking by all the buses Black Plan Road and bushwhack in along the fence (my exit).

11:02am - Parked on Black Plan Road by mailbox 97
11:20am - summit, by Ford F250 pickup w/ snowplow on it
11:32am - Back at car - finally.
