Ascent Trip Report

I did indeed find the benchmark embedded in a concrete square not far (maybe 20') from the PB coordinates. Despite being below sea level, the benchmark nevertheless has the words "elevation above sea" and also has "Artists" stamped on it. There actually is a bit of a climb to this summit.
