Ascent Trip Report

Walked up from Carver's Gap, 1.5M on AT.
The high point is just beyond the Roan High Knob trail shelter.
No view but a nice setting--a smooth outcropping in a stand of fir. All the underbrush and blowdown has been used for campfires at the shelter, leaving a nice carpet of pine needles.
