Ascent Trip Report

I drove north into Dawes County via NE-71 and NE-2, passing by the tiny community of Marsland. Shortly after passing the county line, I followed River Road and Diehl Road to West Belmont Road west and north to the Dawes-Sioux County line, where I went north on an unnamed road into the pine-covered hills. The Dawes County highpoint is a mile up this road, where it tops out near an official-looking antenna complex. I walked east past a fence and jogged up a small hill to the top where a telephone pole stood. Although there are five candidate areas, this area is undoubtedly the highest. A small cairn was also at the highpoint.
