I bypassed the summit , then figured out where it was from a pile of rocks, then went straight up from the North west. On the way down I found a trail with Cairns and all. Unfortunately it dumped me onto the Pikes Peak Highway. I had to walk on it for a mile and a half back to my car. There must be an eaiser way, but I didn't find it. Still it was a nice day.
I got the $4 rate, A good deal.
I tried to tag all the highpoints I could find. I was pretty sure I was on Esther.

Did Heizer via the Mt. Esther trail on a snowy day and followed the trail over to Esther. The trail dumps you on a road and takes you to a saddle north of the summit. I think the confusion here is perhaps the named summit is actually not the highpoint. On the Pikes Peak Atlas, it looks like the named summit is near spot elevation, Pt 9505. There are three candidate highpoints in the area, so visit them all! There is also a 4th area further to the s.e., but that's too far away from the named summit in my book to take into consideration. So I'm a mountain geek. I see how you are, Sarah. Nice page!

Went up the steep trail from Mountain Road on the edge of Chipita Park, then NW until the trail began to descend to the reservoir. Just bushwhacked up the north slope, hit the northern minor summit, then on to the less challenging true summit.
