You quote a fairly long excerpt from my description and say that it is unclear and that "the directions could be better." Could you advise in what respect you consider the directions unclear, and how they could be improved? You indicate that you must have made a wrong turn because you hiked 8.1 miles, but you don't say where you made a wrong turn. If my directions are incorrect or unclear, I want to correct or improve them, but you haven't indicated in any way what the problem is.
Watch out for the surrounding rocks up top of 'Almost Perpendicular' which are great to sit on and soak up the view. A few years back, I went up there. early June, with my dog in the morning and there was a huge rattler sitting right behind me next to the rock in the grass. He let me know that I was intruding.
