Ascent Trip Report

Ample parking at the big cross with a short walk through the neighborhood. First fence (iron and brick wall) is not signed negatively for entry and was much easier to hop over. I walked to what appeared to be the high point next to the gate and discovered the high point was inside the fence. I figured I would walk around to find a weakness before invoking the “my head is higher than the high point and it’s 3 ft away behind barbed wire” rule. Thankfully the gate on the south side of the antenna farm can be easily penetrated without risk of ripping clothes or falling. The actual HP is right next to the gate along the fence on the north side. The BM looks like it used to be on a chunk of cement here. After this junk bump, I went to the cross site for better views of San Diego. Work, specifically a 2 day class brought me here to San Diego. I did not have any time for a real peak on this trip. Pics
