Re: Found a bit better way up

I parked at the monastery but was asked very politely to leave. I was told the owner of the summit sometimes complains to the abbot about people trespassing on their land through the monastery property.

Found a bit better way up  Sucess!

We started up the power lines route but there was an angry resident yelling at something in his backyard about 100 feet away from us, he hadn't yet seen us but we didn't want to chance walking under the power lines right behind his house as he surely would have heard us and he sounded crazy. So we went back to the car, and studied the map for an alternative. My brother noticed that the power lines route led up near a monastery on the way up to the peak, so we simply drove up to the monastery and parked there. It was only another 5 minutes drive up the road and then down a very narrow road, however, there were signs for the monastery so we felt like we wouldn't be hassled.

From the monastery it was about a 3 minute walk (no fences, gates, or negative signage anywhere) on a nice dirt road to connect to the gate mentioned on the main route. Saves about a half mile each way, and the need to cross fences, sneak behind peoples houses, ect. I found the hike itself to be delightful, lots of trees and solitude a bit over 2.5 miles round trip, around 1,000 feet of gain from the monastery.

Re: not the most exciting

Thanks for the accurate info on the distance and el. I'll adjust it on the page.

not the most exciting  Sucess!

3.9 miles, 1342 net vertical, from the powerlines on Harrington Flat Road.

Agreed, fairly boring with no views. Didn't see anyone on the hike but met two people on the road when I got back. They just said hi.

the route on the page  Sucess!

Finally got this one out of the way because I live nearby and also for a page on SP. Also did it back around '97 up the east slope from Hwy 175.
