Ascent Trip ReportDrove the seasonal road to the summit, so I don't consider this a true "successful ascent". Road was a bit bumpy but not too bad. Time was limited, so just wanted to see the tower. Seemed to be just painted as my shoes stuck a bit on the surface. Nicely maintained. Lots of communication antennae around it and some men working on them. Got some good photos, though. Nice views of Stamford and the hills & valleys of the area. I read that there is a small wooden platform that was once used for hang gliding but by the time I got there, I forgot and wondered what that wooden thing was in front of the white building. Did I think to get a photo of it? Nope. Quite a big buggy. Saw a few birds and wildflowers.
