Ascent Trip Report

Followed the ridge up from Rockport Pheasant Farm as other have done in the past. At about 0.7 miles from summit, posted signs were between me and every route I could find to approach the summit. As daylight began to end, I had to turn around and head back to the car. Found 9 ticks on myself when I returned home that night.
