The .8 mile long last road was closed, and had to snow shoe about 1 mile, (pretty flat mile, not strenous at all). Did this without a flashlight, but a full moon.
I climbed this and 3 other highpoints in a couple days. None of them significant, but they had to be done.
Nice day to look at the trees from the stand.
Climbed in the dark with a small light on my key chain. Had problems returning to the parking lot, so I wound up climbing it again twice in the wee hours of the following morning.
Climbed again on November 16, 2007, with Tami Tomski, this time in the daylight. A nice little walk.
A brisk walk uphill. We arrived at 7:30 when the park was to open and arrived at the summit 2 minutes later. The old metal tower is a far better view and a steel cable will provide saftey every 20 ft or so if you brought your harness. Well worth the drive. Stopped a little cafe (Moose Cafe) in town and had a wonderful home cooked breakfast.
