Ascent Trip Report

From Probst (which at the time we mistook as Icy, before shortly realizing our mistake), we headed south for a quarter mile to a clear field which is Icy Knob. Happy to be out of the Ivy (and the state park) we enjoyed summit beers, before returning to the car by the reservoir via the local roads (High County Lane, Silver Creek Lane, Branstrom Orchard Street), abandoned 4x4 roads and a long bushwhack.
