Ascent Trip Report

**2018 UPDATE**

I chose to climb this peak by means of trespassing before my frontal lobe had fully developed (not that that makes what I did ok). I had seen pictures of the summit (which have since been removed from this website) and was under the impression the land was not really inhabited and rationalized in my mind this wouldn't be a problem. I fully realize what I did was wrong, and even if no one was actively using the property, trespassing is still illegal and utterly disrespectful to the property owners.

To the property owners: I am very sorry for trespassing on your property. I meant no harm by it and just wanted the summit, but I should have respected your wishes to not trespass. I believe my report is one of the main ones which you have seen and not taken kindly to. I have since removed it and hope people will respect your property and stay of it. I also hope you will come to the place of being willing to grant others permission to climb this peak. My actions of tresspassing on and climbing this peak does not represent the community of peakbaggers. We DO NOT wish, want, or intend to cause any harm or issues by climbing peaks. I made a poor choice in judgement and wish I could do it over by not doing it at all. I am sincerely sorry for doing what I did and for any issues my actions or report may have caused.

To everyone else: I am sorry for any restrictions or hardships my actions and report (which I have taken down). PLEASE DO NOT FOLLOW MY EXAMPLE! The property owner is not granting access to this peak at this time due to what appears to be because of people like me. Please respect the property owners wishes and stay off their property!
