Ascent Trip Report

Steve Zilly owns the flattened out land used to access the PB highpoint. His white house is on 'Joys Way' off North Street.

I initially parked at the end of the dead end road and went for a stroll. I was 0.2 miles from the highpoint when I heard: "hey." I looked around to see where it came from but seen nobody. I kept walking, and ten steps later "hey, I don't think you're supposed to be there. Turn back". I still couldn't see where the person was! So I made a 180 and went back to the car.

20 minutes later I started asking neighbour's who owned the land. When they told me, I went and knocked on the owners door. Nobody there. Then the realization came to me... the owner, Steve, must have been the one telling me to turn back! I walked on his property once more this time approaching a bush where the voice came out from a little earlier. I seen him in camouflaged clothing with a bow and arrow in his hand. He had been hunting for deer since the early morning. I introduced myself and told him that I was a highpointer. He was really chilled out. He tagged along with me out of curiosity to wonder around the highpoint candidates in that area. Cool guy.
