Ascent Trip Report

I returned to this peak 4+ yrs after my first unsuccessful attempt, this time with Coach Tickner. A new homestead now sits on the field where this peak lives, with a barn sitting on or just south (by <10ft) of the peak itself. The surrounding land is no longer a cornfield, but is now a lawn. We observed the peak closely from Barus Rd, about 50 yds N of the peak. This one is now virtually impossible to bag without coordinating with the owner, which was not in the cards for us. Mills County will have to remain on my unbagged list for now. Would be interested to hear if anyone has any luck.
