Ascent Trip Report

Located on private property, but owner allows access if their form at http://highpointers.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/ky-release.pdf is mailed ahead of time. The back of this form provides a very useful map. If you like your car, you may want to walk 1.5 fairly easy miles along the gravel road leaving 160 at the hairpin turn at the height of the land. The gate at the fork to the summit, just past the FAA radars, was actually open, but that short road is in a terrible shape. There is a registry at the summit.
