Ascent Trip ReportA drive up.
From our hotel in Grand Prairie we drove east on I20 to exit 458, then south on Mountain Creek Prwy for 3.2 miles to a right on Sorcey Road, .25 miles west arrived at the high ground at the left side (south) of the road in the area of that gated houses Nos 7410 to 7420.
This whole area is a densely built up subdivision with small lots and narrow streets with sidewalks, not much natural ground here except perhaps at the above houses (having the largest lots in the area).
We checked out the E-W lane-way behind the above houses. House 7410 has a natural dense wooded area to the southeast. All homes in this area have more than one menacing/barking dog.
I ended up picking my HP to the right of the gated 7410 entrance, at a few large trees, GPS 32.63253,-96.95284. The PB coordinates puts it in the dense wooded area near the lane-way.
