Ascent Trip Report

On the way back from Robe Mountain I used my GPS to find the actual peak top of Indian Fort Mountain and then looped back on the western loop back to the parking lot. I did not do Devil's Kitchen and the other features on the west side including the West Pinnacle. I will come back and do those features next time. I made it back to the car. In all, the total loop of doing, East Pinnacle, Eagle Nest, Buzzard's Roost, Robe Mountain, and Indian Fort Peak and back to the car is a fine day of exercise with a total of over 7 miles of hiking and over 1,700 of total vertical gain and regain.
