Comments
Comments: We took a gated road, a short way back down Jimtown road. There is a good description in bryan's post from 2014. We took a right onto a gated road at the first intersection and a left at the next. The breaking was fairly exhausting on the road. Once the road turned to be close to 70 degrees off heading, we turned and bushwhacked up in mainly open woods. It was a bit steep and the breaking was tough. From the main peak, we headed to the north peak in open woods and followed our tracks back to the main peak.

We began a bushwhack on the SW peak; unfortunately, a number of factors in our group prompted us to turn around and follow our tracks back out before reaching the summit.

Great last day of winter with Ozzy and Becca.
