Ascent Trip Report

Finally checked this peak off my list because after all, it is the highest mountain in the East. Despite that title, it was a fairly easy hike up via the Mt Mitchell Trail off South Toe River Rd. It snowed nearly the entire ascent and it was actually very chilly at the summit with temperatures in the high teens and windy.
