Ascent Trip Report

Started from the pheasant farm near Rockport. Bushwhacked up to the top of the ridge on WMA land and stumbled across a driveway. Totally surprised by this so I headed north through the woods and followed the JCPL land boundary towards the summit. Passed across some powerlines along the way. Eventually made it to the summit contour. It appears that the Pohatcong benchmark is on WMA land but the very very high point is on private land. I didn't go any further but I was satisfied that I "made it to the top" since I was probably less than a few vertical feet from the highest point.
