Ascent Trip Report

The driving directions in Bob Schwab's TR of 2002 are still valid, this report will update today's ground conditions.

Area 1 ..... As reported the highground is to the west of Denman Road in a fallow corn field at 40 yards. Access during the planting/growing season may be a problem, best time to visit is the off season. I chose my spot at 40.67928, 82.63168, the PB's coordinates puts the spot at a lower elevation.

Area 2 ..... from Area 1 went back to the Steam Corners/Denman Roads intersection and traveled west on Steam Corners Road .31 miles to the Communication Tower on the left. We drove up the grass driveway and parked at the fenced-in Tower, the highground is behind the Tower to the west.
I walked/climbed behind the Tower 25 yards, through a row of trees to their west side and an open field. I picked my highground beside the trees at 40.68019, 82.63599.
