Ascent Trip Report

Drove up to the front gate of the towers then got out and walked around. From the gate, I saw a pretty large rock to the left of the fence, walked over there, stood on top, and called it good. The lat/long location listed on here is inside the fence and trespassing on federal property isn't really my idea of a good time on a Sunday evening. The rock I stood on appeared to be higher than any "natural" ground inside the fence.
