Comments
Comments: Walked the road beyond the gate for about .1 miles and then headed for the peak on a s-easterly direction. The jar that Lady B had put up in June was punctured by a bear and on the ground about 20' from the HOL. I rehung it with the holes facing downward so it wouldn't collect rain. If you are planning to hit this peak you should bring a new glass jar to hang. I returned following my inbound route. Woods were pretty open but scrappy near the summit.
