Ascent of Mars Hill on 2018-07-02
|Others in Party:||Austin D. Smith|
|Date:||Monday, July 2, 2018|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||-194 ft / -59 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThe summit is perhaps 200 feet off the highway and is easily reachable in less than one minute. However, our ascent took longer as we debated which summit-area rock is the true highpoint. This peak has no prominence since it is not enclosed by a contour line. The summit elevation is between -240 feet and -200 feet, not -180 feet as reported. The USGS GNIS (Geographic Names Information System) has assigned an elevation of -233 feet (https://geonames.usgs.gov, search for Feature ID:1667292).
