Cleveland Mt 10.7.05

I was hoping for a try of Cleveland Mt., but I got a much later than I would have liked start. To make matters worse a steady rain began as I made my way up US 2. I knew I would have to make good time, so I planned on mountain biking the road walk to save much needed time on the descent. I drove about a mile on the rough road that starts just before the bridge that spans Money Creek. I managed to get the truck turned around and parked as the rain began in earnest. I decided that since I hadn't mountain biked for quite some time it would be prudent to just walk the road. I had hoped to get to the end of the road where I thought there might be a path to the summit. I believe that the peak was once used as a lookout so I surmised there might be an easy route. I made good time slogging through the quite heavy rain. By the time I reached the end of the road I had become quite pruny due to the constant rain. I found what looks like a climber's trail that begins just before the end of the road. I only followed it a short ways before I ran out of time. I made it back to the truck with the rain only gaining in intensity.
