Ascent Trip Report

Funny as hell - I took the metro to the reservoir and found it to be surrounded by a barbed wire fence. I figured as I could not gain access, a walk around would suffice. Just as I was finishing the loop, I saw the front gate open and unguarded. A local cop eating his lunch was disinclined to help, so I walked right up to the gate. After waiting a few minutes, a van pulled up, and when I asked the driver where the front office was, she pointed and told me to go on up. Well in my world, an invitation trumps a "no trespassing" sign, so in I went. Successful ascent, even during high alert!
