Ascent Trip Report

I approached the Polk County highpoint from an un-posted gated access road on the west side. From here it was only .17 air miles to the summit. I was able to follow a road the entire distance and reached the Frederic Lookout Tower in 7 minutes after covering a total of .33 miles. The highest point seemed to be located directly under the tall tower, which still had an attached ladder with a safety cable if you had the right protection. The only way to get a view here would be to climb the ladder, since there are no steps, but I will let bolder climbers than I enjoy that vista.
