Ascent Trip Report

Rather direct approach that probably got closer to the relays than the city would have liked. Not that I disturbed them or anything. Found the HPS register and a geocache (which is only 450 feet from the older geocache down the road, so not registered in the usual system for these things) to sign at the top. A few others like signing the geocache, an ammo can, as well.
