Ascent Trip Report

Should have done a better job researching this. I ended up on the southeast side of the hill, above the golf course. I parked in the small lot north of the course, walked up the road until I was above the houses. Bushwacked up to the col between Fairway and her northeast neighbor. Found a few old roads and buildings from the mine. Finally got to the power line right of way and a trail to the road to the summit. The old tower area is now open and one can climb the old tower. If anyone wants to bag this peak, find the road from the north side. Much easier (though the old mine buildings are worth a visit).
