Ascent Trip Report

Looked at doing this along the turbine maintenance roads off of SR 58 but too many fences and warning material to go off on that 4 mile each way walk past 30 wind turbines so I checked out the intersection of E 1470 road with N 2460 Rd. As chance had it, there was no fences up. They had installed new steel fence posts and the roll fencing was lying around ready to be installed but no signs. Could not find a single "no trespassing" sign or anyone to talk to. Could see some low and tattered field fences off in the fields. The HP lies only around a mile and a half south of this point diverging with the parallel power easement. I would suspect the new tall fences along the roads will be up soon and this direct route may not exist in the near future.
