Ascent Trip Report

Drove up to the end of the road. We first visited the coordinates marked here on Peakbagger, an area with quite an amazing view. I had my doubts that this was the actual highest point, so just in case, I also visited the highest point marked on the topographic map (where it says ''Lookout Tower,'' just to the north, accessible by a dirt access road). It seems like the lookout tower is gone, instead there is now a fenced communication tower there, but it's possible to reach the site of the lookout tower, which is partially outside the fenced area. No real view here, but I would also visit here, if you want to be sure that you've been to the top.
