[edit] Location

Originally surveyed to be just up a slight hill off of Highway 80. Upon arrival, it became clear that it was up a MOUNTAIN.

Almost none. Drive there and scope it out.

[edit] Expedition

When we got there it quickly became apparent that the elevation gain was much steeper than it had been surveyed to be. However, we still attempted it and managed to climb up the entire way with great difficulty. Once we got there, however, the GPS on the iPhone we were using started to glitch out, jumping all around. We eventually used satellite images in absence of a reliable GPS in order to pinpoint the spot, and we made it. During the GPS glitching, it did get it correct a few times, and we quickly screen captured as proof.
