Ascent Trip Report

I didn't really realize this was the most prominent summit in the state of WI until just now. I figured I would log it in to add it to my list of State Prominence peaks. I've been here numerous times before in the past and have so many memories of visiting. My mom brought us here a lot and I even remember climbing the observation tower at the top and looking down over the devastation left from the big 1984 Barnaveld tornado that left rubble in it's wake. My ascent date that I've listed is just my most recent climb. I've been to the park more recently than that but it was to Cross Country Ski. It's a great park and a great part of the country. By the way, if you're into mountain biking they have great trails here too.
