Ascent Trip Report

Flew in to O'Hare from Stockholm. Landed just after noon and rented a car. Followed I-88 West and then North towards the upper left corner of Illinois. Parked along the road and hiked the old dirt road to reach the top. The Wuebblers had put a few camping chairs at the lawn where we could rest and look at the view.

A successful first climb on our list of six for this Labor Day weekend.
