Ascent Trip Report

I started at the roadway and walked in, trying to follow the fence. I had to jog around several marshy and flooded areas, so on the way back I followed the old farm road. This is used a handful of times each year and goes right past the highpoint, but I am not sure how to get on it. Area was not posted. The orange combine is still there. I agree the highpoint appears to be right on the fence line.
