Ascent Trip Report

I just had to, enjoy seeing this (faux) Fire Tower which from a distance gave a true appearance in the middle of a rich concentration of snowmobile trails! After a short bushwhack beyond, I built a small cairn at distinct hump, summit. At the Fire Tower, the round metal legs are climbed like telephone poles to service this cell tower.
