Lots of fun scrambling up to the summit of Calvary Rocks from the Riprap trail. I followed what must be the easier old man's route because I didn't encounter any class 4.
Great views especially toward Trayfoot, Blackrock, and Horsehead mountains. I didn't pay enough attention so I descended southwest instead of north causing me to scramble around in thorny, rocky brush for 45 minutes until I reoriented myself and got back on trail.
I scrambled up the rocks and continued to the summit of Rocks Mountain.
Did the Wildcat Ridge - Riprap Hollow loop again last weekend. Haven't tried climbing on the rocks, but have gone out onto them for a picture.
Riprap loop has great perches at Calvary & Chimney rocks. Halfway through there is a waterfall and big pool that looks like it belongs in Hawaii.
Not too sure about using a rope anywhere here. Maybe I missed something. My dog & I scrambled up to the top. Real nice spot for a snack.
