Ascent Trip Report

Climbed as part of field work during the 1980 VSO (Virginia Society of Ornithology) foray to the Mt. Rogers area. We started on SR 603 and crossed Pine Mountain / Wilburn Ridge before taking the spur trail to the Mt Rogers summit where we ate lunch. We went down by a different route (Mt Rogers Trail), making a loop when we returned to Grindstone Campground. It would be 37 years before I hiked on Wilburn Ridge again.
