Ascent Trip Report

Took the paved road from the gap on a glorious sunny afternoon. Quite a dramatic view from the top, although it's pretty crapped up with garbage and graffiti. I spent the first few minutes there, before my picnic lunch, bagging up other people's garbage. As I sat there, a young couple drove up in a noisy heavy duty pickup and immediately emerged with spray paint cans.When I suggested maybe they shouldn't add to the grunge, they seemed quite baffled that anyone would object to the practice. Shortly after a biker who had come up all the way from Harrisonburg arrived and we had a nice conversation. She offered that the problem with drive-ups is it's too easy for a-holes to get there, and I concurred.
