Ascent Trip Report

**Access Update**

If you want to claim this high point, do it ASAP!! There is new construction on the property and it looks like it is nearly complete. The high point is definitely on their property and based on every CoHP trip report I have read for Texas, access is not readily granted. I parked right in front of the gate along Wood Valley Dr. I checked for neighbors and residents, and hopped over the gate. I walked up the driveway, past the new house and into the backyard. The high ground is where other reports have described it, just east of the fence separating it from the next lot over which has no construction going on. I set my tripod on the fence for a picture and took a few other pictures of the area, as well as the new house. Pics available here.
