Ascent Trip Report

From Hwy 112 turn S on the Joyce Piedmont Road at Crescent School. Quickly turn left on the unsigned dirt Joyce Access Road. Follow this road as mapped for 2+ miles to a fork at 1100'. Go uphill to the right. Follow this another 2+ miles or so to the summit spur which is uphill on the right at a fork. The summit connection is unmapped but is straightforward. The final spur has a gate that is .3 miles from the top that was open on this day. A fenced tower complex crowns the peak. All high ground has been flattened and gravelificated. It's blah. No negative signs at all en route or on the gate. Road is driveable in a sedan. Land appears to be public. Yay. Easy.
