Ascent Trip Report

SR2002 out of the village of Mt. Morris passes within less than 500 feet of the hp coordinates, but I found no place to park nearby. I parked a bit west of the closest spot at a pull off near a gated track leading to a microwave tower. The track continues beyond the tower to within 200 feet of the coordinates. Three trees near the spot had plastic ribbons forming a triangle. I searched for the benchmark within the triangle but did not find it.
