Ascent Trip Report

The access road is now gated and posted. I parked at the adjacent Gaston Baptist Church and bushwhacked westward through fairly open woods to reach the power line right-of-way. There are several deerstands here, so be careful. I followed the dirt road SW to the HP area, where there is a three-way fork. The right fork leads to the HP.
