Ascent Trip Report

Parked at turn out as others did. Walked down to the pond and touched water's edge to make that elevation my starting TH. Then bushwhacked up the south slope. Much logging in there, trees down, and tall ferns made this a bit of a stumbling bushwhack. Took about 45 minutes to summit and back to car. Came out of woods about 100 yards from where I started.
