Ascent Trip Report

Looked around the towers next to the park road for a path and then realized it was the road the appeared to head down the mountainside. It turned, however, and went south to the high area. There was a house of some kind on the right side with signs about surveillance, but I figure since I was on the road it was ok. Passed more towers and confirmed they were not the high point which was further along. Finally the last tower had big government warning signs and that was it according to the coordinates.
