Ascent Trip Report

How many people can say they've blown a tire at a national high point? Shortly before arriving at Signal de Botrange, two screws punctured through the left front tire of my rental car, leaving me just enough air to get to the parking lot at the high point. Thankfully, the tire was repaired later that night.

In the mean time, I explored the artificial high point monument, the actual high point monument (just to its southwest), and took a walk around the very flat terrain near the restaurant and roadway to ensure I hit any other potential high spots.
