Ascent Trip Report

Parking is a problem a lot of signs don't do this etc... just before the marina entrance was a place for a guard to do whatever and he was not there but there was 5 little snug paved stalls and I grabbed one. I bushwhacked down to the lake touched water and bushwhacked up the HP. Having done this twice I am pretty sure this candidate point near the water tank is the higher of the two points. See previous report.
