Ascent Trip Report

I found Gerry Roach's register on the knoll north of the tower in which he and John Mitchler claim that it is higher than the ground around the tower.

The register on the knoll north of the tower. Note the elevation 9192.

Only two additional people had signed the register other than those shown here.

I also visited the tower of course and climbed it to get a better view. Here's the GPS next to the benchmark at the base of the tower. Note the exact same 9192 feet elevation. The measured elevation of the BM is 9165, so obviously my GPS couldn't be counted on for the two elevation readings in these photos.
