Ascent Trip Report

I used Dennis Poulin's excellent directions. My mileages varied only slightly from his. The hike was pretty nice, but the summit sucked. It was covered with micro wave towers and signs warning me of high radiation danger. I didn't hang around long. I found no register. Clouds obscured the views today.
