Would be a good route if it was cleaned up a bit.

With all the brush at the base of the route, I'm surprised we identified it. It's more like 90 feet, so you get a nice view from the top. I agree it would be better if it were cleaned up a bit, but the trail would need to be cleared, too, to make it worth it. There were lots of fallen trees and rhodos to bushwhack through.
