Ascent Trip Report

The previous trip reports are accurate, with one minor exception. After you drive 8.3 miles on Rim Rock Ranch Roads and you make a right turn through two gates (unlocked, but closed) you don't take the first gate to the right, you drive a little bit further on a two tire tracked path until you get to a barb wire gate. This is directly west of the HP. I talked to a ranch hand as I entered in from SR 156 and he was very friendly and continues to allow access to the ranch...just leave gates as you see them and keep the chain lock on the outside of gates.
BTW, I hiked three of these highpoints in June and never saw one snake.
