Comments
Comments: I walked the road to its end and began a bushwhack towards the main peak. Conditions started as hardwood regrowth and then opened a bit. Arriving at the spine of the western ridge, the woods got very thick. Things opened up for the most part as I followed the ridge over a false bump and to the recognized high point.

I then followed the ridge back to the west end, before dropping towards the col with the south peak. The woods on the slope were very thick. Things opened up to the col and then to the recognized highpoint of the south peak. To return, I dropped down to the road in open woods.
