Awesomely steep hike. Very pretty on a partly cloudy day! What do you all suppose that pole was for? The state has access now on Sutherland. Don't know where you would park down there, but you can park at the 'normal' spot and the state property is about 500' from there. Heavily marked...
Route Climbed: eastern side bushwhack Date Climbed: 10/11/2005
This the access is off Meat Camp Rd at the gap. Please contact the owners as they would like to know who is on the mountain.
I was up last month. Past the gate, I went right, should've gone straight. Ended up bushwhacking steeply up the east side of the mountain. The path on the summit ridge is fairly overgrown. In warm months I recommend long pants and long sleeve shirt. Good views from the HP, though fair amount of clouds when I was up, should be spectacular when clear.
I then went over to Rich Mt Bald and bushwhacked to the summit. I lost my keys and my wife ended up driving an hour to bring me another key. She hadn't been that mad in awhile.
