Ascent Trip Report

We parked at the road crest on 37th Avenue after driving north out of Ripon. There is a ditch on the side of the road and a rise of several feet up to the farm field's elevation. This may be less than a foot higher than the road, but a twenty foot walk in north and south made us sure we touched the highpoint. This would be doable even with high crops as the high ground was in the road right-of-way. Although Sheboygan County has been called the easiest in Wisconsin, I'd say this is easier, having just climbed Parnell Tower an hour prior to coming here.
