The Climb

From the campsite, scramble west up a steep, grassy slope that soon becomes a shoulder. The terrain is easy, short field grass. The shoulder leads up to a forested ridge that heads left-ish/southwest. Follow the ridge southwest in an easy, open pine forest to quickly reach another ridge bend. Head right/west here and follow the ridge as it wiggles a bit but goes directly to the summit of Leacock Point. The final push to the summit is in open grass alongside the edge of the forest. The summit has a gold USGS benchmark and a few summit boulders. I built a cairn atop the highest boulder. There are two other USGS benchmarks nearby. The summit is in an open, grassy area with the forest nearby.
