Comments: Despite the black flies, we tried to grab some northern peaks before the logging regrowth leafs out.

Of the dozen peaks we did over three days, this had the best woods. And given all the logging, we were expecting bad woods.

Any way... followed the overgrown logging road, easy to follow herd path threaded through small pine trees. Crossed a small brook (rock hop) and the logging road ends in a clearing at about 0.15 mi.

There was a wet area to avoid, which we did by circling around its west then north (clockwise). From there, we had great luck threading our way through easy woods, and we managed to avoid all regrowth and whippets. Near the top there was a tiny band of dense pine, which we threaded to by hanging to the right.

Summit jar. Descended the same way... hitting good woods.

Fun three days up in Errol with JEM3.
