Ascent Trip Report

The best way to start the year is doing a potential trespass peakbagging trip! As mentioned in others TR for this peak, the summit is between 2 houses in a patch of forest off of NW Penridge Rd. We rationalized that given it was in between the houses and featured a water tank, that it must be public land since private homeowners don't typically have a personal 500,000 gallon water tank in their front yard. We walked about halfway up the driveway on the right side and then ditched off left into the forest. It is all over grown and moderately forested which provides some cover. We found he ground we believed to be the highest and then made our retreat and drove off. Its a cool little hike when there is snow all through that patch of forest, otherwise it would be pretty dull "hike".
