Ascent Trip Report

I followed Mike Schwartz directions. Near the high point, I found a variety of new dirt roads and tracks with surveyor’s ribbons. Looks like possible energy co. exploration. While rough they were passable in my Hyundai Tucson to the base of the last incline below the high point, only a couple of hundred feet away. I used GPS to navigate these tracks. An off road vehicle or heavy duty truck could even drive up this last hill but I walked up. The fence around the old tower area has been trampled down on one side.
