Ascent Trip Report

I had a little more trouble than expected due to the foggy, drizzly weather. It wasn't obvious to me where the peak was, and I headed up the wrong road once or twice. I parked at the lot (xxx, xxx), visited the observatory then walked the road, heading up a road to the right that led only to a water tank. The correct junction is at (xxx, xxx), at which point I walked a road to the use paths heading up to the fire tower.
