Ascent Trip Report

This was an enjoyable climb. Fairly easy but steady ascent. I got there just a bit early and it was still pretty dark so I wish I had a headlamp or had remembered that I had a small flashlight in my pack.

The tower wasn't completely finished - the safety wire wasn't up on some of the levels but this didn't stop me from going to the top. It's a really high tower and the view is incredible.
