Ascent Trip Report

Given my experience bushwhacking, I cannot in good faith call the off-trail experience to grab this peak a 'whack. It was a very short (100 ft) jaunt from the trail thru minimal vegetation. It is important to note that there is an erroneous AMC map of this area, showing the trail clearly as deviating to the SOUTH of this peak, when in reality, the trail goes very close to the peak but passes NORTH of it. I routinely find errors in AMC maps, which is why I left it at home when I saw a discrepancy between it and the free map that can be found at The state map was correct.
