Ascent Trip ReportI drove up the nice paved road to the observatories and parked in the visitor parking lot. The highpoint is north of there behind the big Mayall telescope, so I hiked the road and a path over there until I was just northeast of the telescope. The high point is northeast of the road. I found a climbers trail on the east side of the large rocky area, followed it through a little brush and then climbed up about 20 ft on big boulders to the summit. Great views.
