Ascent Trip Report

So, apparently this is a CoHP. Aidan and I stopped here on our way to the Dolly Sods wilderness in the evening after doing Spruce Knob earlier in the day. We hiked into the Dolly Sods from the TH just north of the summit and spent the night there. I never logged the summit into peakbagger since we drove almost all the way up it and had no idea it was a summit of note. We just walked over from the main dirt road. The view wasn't that great due to the clouds. I'm sure it's wonderful on a clear day.

This climb was logged in Dec, 2010. I only learned about county highpointing in the fall of 2009 and stumbled across this one that I had completed while researching a trip back east that I hope to do a number of CoHPs on.
