Ascent Trip Report

I pulled up to the mailbox by the highpoint. I was going to get permission from the house across the road assuming that they owned it. However, I saw that they were pouring concrete at a new building there, and I didn't want to get in their way. The highpoint is just northeast of a little lake and I ran up from the mailbox. Of the two points, the larger one seemed higher to me. This was an easy one with just a short jaunt into a cornfield.
