False summit register page

We were surprised to find that the majority of people who visited Cape Horn Mountain believed that the false summit was the high point as this single sheet of paper, found in a gatorade bottle seemed to indicate. What is even more amazing is that this paper, placed in 2000 had safely weathered 11 years in such a flimsy register container. I wish I had taken a picture of the container but this sheet had 28 entries with some entries representing more than one person. One was for a party of 8. So, it is possible that many had reached the false summit and felt that they had summitted the high point and didn't bother to go to the other summit, a bit to the north. My suggestion is that you hit both summits in order to safely claim this one. Click to highest resolution.
