Ascent of Galax City High Point on 2010-09-28
|Date:||Tuesday, September 28, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
|Peak:||Galax City High Point|
| Elevation:||2900 ft / 883 m|
Ascent Trip ReportAccess road from Country Club Lane/Tower Road is signed as Stoneman Knob, though the topo name is Ward Knob.
A new water tank has been built on the E side of the summit, which makes me suspect that the city of Galax has annexed land beyond the boundaries shown on the topo maps. There is a chance the summit has been annexed, too. The tank is probably higher than the recognized liner HP.
In any event, city annexation adds a level of complexity to HPing in Virginia, where the cities are separate from counties.
