Ascent Trip Report

We found a wrench we had found and stashed on our previous descent and used it to take off the metal plate covering the vent we used to gain access to the main building. The entire vent hole underneath had been filled with concrete. The building is officially inaccessible. Watch tower we used to always climb next to the main building was also removed before this trip. Some of the barracks had been demolished and were just in piles of trash on this trip as well. A shame to see history destroyed before the public got to check it out.
