Ascent Trip Report

This looked pretty straightforward from the previous trip reports, but things have changed for the worst with regard to access. The fields below the high point are now presumably for livestock grazing. There is a gate at the bottom of the driveway (as noted in previous reports). However, there are now two gated electric fences across the driveway about halfway up. You can unhook them (presumably) or climb through them. I chose the latter and found out that, though the 'gate' area appears to be a fabric ribbon, it is indeed hot. Nothing scary, just a tingle. But be advised, this is probably going to require conserving with the landowner. This appears to be a big dairy farm northeast of the high point.
