Ascent Trip Report

This wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be (after two bushwhacks from hell). Parked at the end of Wolf Pond Road and followed a 4WD track south. It turned east into a meadow (there is a gate and some sort of instrumentation thingie in the middle, which I gave a wide berth), which you can take to the southeast corner. There are some bramble here you have to fight through, then and a gametrail/manway heads toward the HP. My GPS was well and dead at this point, so I wandered about until I was satisfied, then headed back to my car as quickly as possible as the thunder was getting quite close.
