Ascent Trip Report

You wouldn't think a drive-up highpoint would be that difficult, but after a bad fall in South Dakota this proved to be a challenge. Early in the day, I tore my ACL, completely unrooted my meniscus and destroyed the cartilage in my knee. This highpoint was a real hopper for me.

The GPS systems will likely take you to the wrong location. If you come to a farmhouse, and the GPS says turn into their driveway, don't. That's not the entrance. The entrance is about a 1/4 a mile down or up the road depending on your direction. You are looking for an entrance with a drive through gate (green if I remember correctly). No farm house.

Mind the buffalo! If you're lucky they might be up at the fence by the parking area.
