Ascent Trip Report

Bagged this with Coach Tickner on second try after having wrong coordinates on first try two days earlier. An easy .9 mi drive on a gravel road to a parking lot just NE of the radio tower, which is where the peak is. There's an unusually large building next to the tower marked "AT&T". Apparently, this was built in the 60's as a emergency military comm facility. Seems rather run-down now, but the tower appears to still be in use.
