Ascent Trip Report

Still no public access to the high point. Security cameras, 'No Trespass' signs, tall fences and gates with concertina wire are set to discourage bicyclists and hikers from approaching closer than 0.2 miles of the antenna facility. That's as close as I chose to go, but I'll still claim the peak since it was well out of my way to get that close. The gate I stopped at was signed "Shangri La," and "What part of No Trespassing Don't You Understand?"
