Ascent Trip Report

One last quick hike/climb before going off to do County HPing and then to my hotel in OKC. This was last as I was hot and tired. The parking lot was busy and there was about 6 people on the tiny peak and more coming. I hiked it quickly in 10 minutes stopping only to talk to two guys from FL riding their bikes across the country to CA and they actually carried their bikes up the tiny peak with them. Then I ran back to the car. Nice 360 views and the dam feature is really pretty cool in the gorge. But I prefer the solitude of all the wilderness summits earlier in the day. It was very windy on this tiny peak and the gusts were up around 40 mph.
