Ascent Trip Report

High Peak is in a gated community that is posted for residents and guests only. A realtor may be able to help you gain access. The peak is 3 miles from the gate and is an antenna farm that includes a derelict fire tower where the first flight of stairs has been removed. Considering how conspicuous this peak is along I-40, I was disappointed by the limited views from the top. The topo shows a BM but I did not find it.
