Ascent Trip Report

I looked up the Hamilton County GIS map, which shows 2-foot contours. This suggested that the most likely COHP is a 2150 contour southwest of the water tank at 108 Fort Circle, while the other area at 814 North Bragg Avenue reaches 2148. Now that I have visited these sites, it's obvious that the GIS data is wrong. The hill under the water talk rises at least 6 feet higher than the contour pinpointed by GIS. Attached map is not to be trusted.
