Ascent Trip Report

Hit this one pretty early, about 9am I think. Blue ridge parkway was closed, so took the longer route up from the southeast. Drive was pretty, but not quite as spectacular as I expected tbh. Summit was fairly cold and windy, though nothing extreme. Easy paved trail to the top. Visitor's center etc were closed for the winter (including the summit bathrooms!).
