Ascent Trip Report

This place is in ruins. Reportedly, a snarly old caretaker lived there several months a year. A friend who was birding in the area in the early 80's was chased out of the area by the caretaker. She said that he was a crazy old guy who thought he owned the entire area. The owners put in a lot of work to construct the buildings and retaining walls and plant trees. The trees have thrived, but the buildings have not survived vandalism and the years of neglect. Evidently, it is still owned by the owners of the Balboa Island Ferry. It has an interesting history.
