Comments
Comments: I walked the road for a couple of miles before hitting the col. The woods were a bit thick around the col, but not bad getting up to it. I started with boil, finding some thick woods and steep going around the top. A sub peak to the north has great views. The recognized highpoint was only a short distance from the subpeak. I headed towards Onion, finding thick woods near the top of Boil, and in the col. but not bad on Onion, to the recognized highpoint. From Onion, I headed straight to the road, finding some thick going, but nothing too bad.
