What's up with Durst Mt.?

Any major reason no one has registered an ascent? Is there any red tape like being on private land or behind a barbed wire fence or communication towers?

If there isn't any reason to not hike it, I'm going to do so in the next few weeks and make a page for it. I've taken a lot more than I've given to the site and want to contribute in some way.

Doing a little more digging found this:

Durst Mountain – (9,284 feet)

Durst Mountain is one of the highest peaks in the area that is located east of the main Northern Wasatch crest. It stands above all of the other mountains east of the valley. It is located east of the town of Mountain Green and north of Morgan. The Cottonwood Creek Road provides the shortest approach from the north side of the mountain. Durst Mountain is also one of the Utah prominence peaks. Access is limited due to private property and this is one of the reasons why the mountain is not climbed often.

Looks like might be private land.

It's located on a CWMU, Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit, like several other peaks in Utah. That's why it's not climbed much. The area is open to a small selection of hunters during the fall season. Hikers might be able to get permission from the land operator of this area.
