Ascent Trip Report

Excellent summit views giving an overview of the "impossible railroad".

A few things had me wondering

- I know the area has a lot of mining history. It appears there was at one time electricity running to the summit and some sort of structure atop. I can't find any info about the history of this mountain and any insight would be appreciated.

- Unusual register - practically every entry over the years contained some sort of Biblical reference and I'm curious what makes this mountain so popular with fervent believers.
