Route: Logging roads, bushwhack

Logging roads were increasingly unpleasant due to prickers (and ticks). Steep bushwhack in open woods to the highpoint. Excellent views a bit to the north of the highpoint, courtesy a selective logging cut. Attempted to avoid on the descent by going east, but found cliffs and more prickers.
