Ascent Trip Report

Bagged as part of SB6K challenge. See my 8/30/20 ascent of Waterrock Knob for the full trip report.

Coming up from the gap with the house and the tower, the trail passes almost directly over the summit. You'll see a large metal pole on a concrete foundation to the right, just past this is the true summit. After a short descent you'll arrive at the memorial cross.
