Yep....I climbed Jayne's Hill!

Elevation 401'. Brutal 250' climb, including 2 crossings of Route 110 in 40 degree overcast skies. No crampons or snowshoes required. A downed tree blocks the main trail from the east about 100' from the graffiti covered peak. Too cold for the local degenerates to be out. I even had to step across one puddle. Brutal I tell ya. Brutal.

What did the crux go free at, or did you aid?  Cool

Did you do the entire thing as a day hike or did you camp overnight on the route?    Confused

I had to bivy in front of the Rite-Aid on Route 110 for about 5 minutes waiting for it to open. I needed supplies - Coke and a candy bar. Neutral

Did your supplies include alcohol? Did you require a high-altitude stove to warm sake?

In the link code, maybe the BB does not like special characters.
