Ascent Trip Report

This was a difficult and nerve racking climb. The communication tower road is gated and posted. We found a nice Amish man that didn't owe the summit property but allowed us to park on his property. We jumped the gate and jogged up the utility road. There is a house to the left in plain site as you head up the utility road. Once you reach the tower you are in the cover of the timber but we heard gun fire in all directions and ATV's everywhere. I also counted 4 or 5 deer stands I could see just from our path. The tower is not on the summit and you must bushwhack deeper in the timber, crossing a couple ATV trails to reach the summit. Deer hunting season really is a bad and unjoyable time to attempt this one.
