Ascent Trip Report

Followed Jim Retemeyer's instructions for parking and his track for the most part. I came to what seemed like a relatively new fence, with a "Closed area, no motor vehicles" sign. Didn't seem to apply to people on foot, so I slipped through and made my way to the summit. This was my favorite hike of the day. Great fun finding my way to the top. Touched the obvious high point. No register that I could find. I had a delightful sense of isolation on this hike.
