Bob Martin and I followed the access from the north described in the US-CGS BM notes. Nothing to add to it, except that we had to start from the public road and walk 0.5 mile farther than they did. The HP is composed of interesting rock.

As a convenience, here is a copy of the US-CGS BM notes that I used (I have changed the case to make it easier to read).
