Ascent Trip ReportIt was not a good day for county highpointing for me. This was my second attempt today and again I was met with posted property that I was not bold enough to enter. I found the same spot mentioned in Ben Lostracco's report with the home under construction, located NW of Comanche Peak, but the extremely high posted, locked gate was too intimidating for me, especially with my car having to be left very suspiciously out in the open. This was quite frustrating because the ascent road could be clearly seen behind the gate and it appeared the summit view would be excellent. Based on the steep contour lines shown on the topo map surrounding the entire perimeter of Comanche Peak, this might be the only practical ascent route. Hopefully the future will bring friendly occupants to this new home.
