|Peak:||Ellen D Mountain|

Ascent Trip ReportTake the road directly west of "Contact, NV" and follow the signs to tower road. This road is steep but a good 2 wheel drive vehicle with clearance should make it up. Go through one gate. The route is obvious. The road has recently been worked by a CAT dozer in order to get construction equipment on top. They appear to be installing a new tower on top. I was amazed by the size of the crane that was on the top. I believe the CAT must have helped pull this crane up the hill.
