Ascent Trip Report

I 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.
