Ascent Trip Report

The highest ground here appears to be in the vicinity of an impenetrable thicket of blackberry bushes located between the fenced water tower area to the south and a private residence (#14629) to the north. The highest ground attainable without getting shredded by thorns is the base of a large tree at the NE corner of the water tower fence. One can walk east along the north side of the fence, and it is hard to tell from surveying the thicket if there is higher ground in there or not. Since I was without heavy clothing and clippers, I was willing to call this good for now.
