Ascent Trip Report

Patrick Bergeron gave great advice. I did not want to park, however, in front of someone's house so I parked down at the commercial nursery in a large paved parking lot and jogged up the steep hill of Iron Point Road and instead of going on Carpenter Hill Road I climbed the very steep road cut (not a good idea) very loose material. I did that to stay private but from what I could see, i should have just not shortcutted the line and gone up the path that Patrick indicated off Carpenter Hill Road
