Ascent Trip Report

I drove up on a newly graded road to the hill with the comm towers marked as 7161 on the topo. There is a fire lookout just southwest of the comm towers that is rentable and a nice lady was there and allowed me to look around. I hiked from the comm towers eastward to the brush covered closed contour nearby. At one time the comm tower location was probably higher, but it has been flattened and now it looks like the east contour is 2-3 ft higher.
