Ascent Trip Report

Except for a few feet of wandering to find the high spot, a drive up. About 5 mi. south of Thomas on 219 a small track heads off to the left to an abandoned building and some sort of derelict tower facility. The highest spot looked like a dirt mound next to the concrete bldg. but it's probably man made. If you are super compulsive you'll have to find a way over or around the rear fence because if the small mound is man made the highest spot is a few feet behind the fence.
