Ascent Trip Report

Military radar facility (abandoned) on top. Gate was open, but probably should be closed to keep the vandals and looters out. Site on top has been trashed over the years and is sad. There is nice signs showing the surrounding mountains, some of which have been neglected and fallen over or knocked over on purpose. Sad.
