Ascent Trip Report

Rain previous days and light rain on the drive up. Almost no rain during the hike, just a sprinkle. Cool with temperatures in the 50s. Used outdated hiking guide and thought there would be views on the top. The top is actually in the trees which have grown back after the firetower was removed decades prior. Found magnetic rocks on top (compass needle deflected 180). Hiked on same day as 9/11 flag day. Encountered two flag groups on top.
