Ascent Trip Report

Access Notes: From US76 at Dicks Creek Gap, drive about 13.6 miles and make a right at Shake Rag Road. From here it is a 2.1 mile ride which previously had been very rough near the end. Now it is all paved all the way to the summit parking area. There is another parking area below which is where I chose to park. From there it is a quarter mile walk to the top of the observatory stairs. It is very steep – almost like climbing stairs on this short pitch.
