Ascent Trip Report

Much of the area has been modified. Berms have been pushed up and stabilized on both of the peninsula, and of course the construction of the fort itself altered the landscape. I parked in a parking area near the gate that blocks further vehicle access and wandered the nearby grounds. the area where I parked looked about as high as any natural ground, assuming that natural ground remains. I did walk part of the fort's parapet, but I suspected that it was manmade. I arrived about a half hour before the closing of the Casement Museum and spent 20 minutes or so doing a walk-through of the museum before embarking on my assault on supposedly high ground.
