Ascent Trip Report

We pulled off the interstate into Jackson and then drove a river road to County Highway 4. A left on County Highway 29 brought us to the state line with Iowa. We stayed straight on 10th street and turned left on 10th avenue. The highpoints were right there, the road being the highest, although obviously artificial. After walking down the banks to be on "natural ground" we called it done. There wasn't much of a view as there was next to no prominence whatsoever.
