Ascent Trip Report

Made the short side trip over to this one after hitting 'Cornell lookout.' Parked right at the edge of town and took one of the many trails up. Climbed the tower at the top, which might have been the hardest thing I've done in a while (it's a series of vertical metal ladders up 60 feet). Back down the shorter trail to the road.
