Ascent Trip Report

Drove from Sam A Baker State Park on state hwy 143. Went straight on road 163 as hwy 143 turned to the right.
Parked the vehicle at 37.28288,90.61329 and took an old, rocky, overgrown ATV trail which approached the summit from the NNW, along a ridge. I came to a barbed wire fence and a threatening no trespassing sign at 37.27337,90.61098.
When I considered and alternate route. I found a similar sign and a gated road east along road 163 on the way back.
