Ascent Trip Report

drove the long windy road from I-5 to this point; parked at base of road going up from the highway; saw quite a few people going up for a party or something on one of the side road turnoffs. The tower on top was closed but we took the stairs as far as we could; then we all walked completely around the base to ensure we did the highest point, probably some rocks on the steep side of the tower.
