Ascent Trip Report

Found previous trip reports access was posted, so talked to the farmer down the road. He was very nice and gave us access to the high point which he owned. He warned us of the bulls that were in the exact highpoint area at the time, and the electric fence. We had to go through a gate, which he asked we make sure and close.
At the top the bulls were not too happy to have us around and let us know who was boss by grunting and stomping feet, scratching dirt. A short walk around the top, making sure we visited the right and left humps to ensure the highpoint.
