Ascent Trip Report

Having read previous trip reports, I knew it was important to seek permission from the homeowner before entering their private property. And so, I arrived at 1053 Herrick Rd in Duanesburg, drove up the driveway, and then knocked on the door of the Hawes family. Dogs barked as I knocked several times, but despite there being another car in the driveway, there was no answer at the door. And so I parked my car at the abandoned farmhouse across the field from the Hawes home, then walked across the open field and bushwhacked into the woods. There was an opening in the trees that look like vehicles had once used. The bushwhacking was easy, and within 80 to 100 yards I was at the obvious high ground.

My GPS reading for the location I chose as the high point was 42.794877, -74.298061
Elevation reading was 1,477', but I am dubious about its accuracy
