Ascent Trip ReportI drove via 27N10 and 27N51 to the spur near Tanners Rock in Section 34 that heads SE to the saddle between the lookout and the Rock. I could have gotten to the junction in a carefully driven sedan, under the dry conditions I experienced. On the spur to the saddle, high clearance was useful. I drove the old lookout road almost to the summit; that required 4WD but it would have been a short walk.
