Ascent Trip Report

We first went to the southernmost of the two points and found a locked gate around the high ground. We didn't feel like asking to go in, and also it was a Saturday so we thought no one would be around. Then we drove to the northern point which is conveniently located in a park with a water tower on Hadley Lane. The ground was very flat, but a quick walk around the tower seems to cover the area in question. I have no idea if this area rises five feet to beat the 1104 spot elevation on the southern point, as it is that flat and was probably leveled during development. This ascent will be complete when I get into the gate for the southern point.
