Ascent Trip Report

My passion is peakbagging; and highpointing is only a secondary interest, so it was not worth violating all the signs to grab this one. I had researched the aerial and it looked a lot easier to simply pull up to the radio tower along Sylvan Road. Tuck your car in the their parking lot and hustle back east to the 2 candidate points. So that was the plan. In and out with no fuss. Probably still could do that. But, it would require a heavily indicated no tresspass and that is not my thing.

The aerial did not indicate the big gate across the driveway with the huge letters "no trespassing" and some power company whatever...... You could easily step around the gate and go back but I did not want to park my car out in the public R/W next to the No Trespassing sign and at the end of the day I am happy to paint this one "red" on the map and move on to something that can be hiked. It was 8PM too late to go looking for the farmers to grant permission and all that fuss but I noted at this time of year it did not get dark till after 9 PM
