Ascent Trip ReportFinally had a business trip to Chicago line up with the available weekends to visit the ILL high point.
Picked up a rental car at ORD and drive out to the high point. Arrived at the driveway entrance around 1:00pm and walked the driveway up to the high point. There were ~4 other couples visiting the high point, and 30+ had already been there today.
Meet the owners who were doing some work on the driveway repairing some spring wash out.
