Ascent Trip Report

Parked at N 40 48.769 W 074 58.265, and from here you can take the woods road and bear left at the two splits, which will take you relatively close to the summit. In our case, we did Oxford first, and then straight-line whacked to CH before taking the woods road back out. We got about 250' from the summit before turning away at the posted signs, as it's not quite like failing that close to the top of Everest. If you do this solo, it would be supremely easy, but combining it with Oxford and the subsequent whack it was a bit nasty with tons of rocks and stickers.
