Ascent Trip Report

Drove to parking lot at kilometer 4.7 per the signs (actually closer to 4.9). About 1/4-mile farther is a locked gate. Walked snowy but plowed road to towers. Visited tower area, an area SW of the towers, and then the area NE of the towers. I believe the highest point is on the south end of the latter area, but the woods and the snow cover made it impossible to confirm.

Signs indicate that I could have taken a trail from the tower area to the high point if I'd waited for non-snowy conditions.
