Ascent Trip Report

After spending too much time on Big Schloss, I opted for Tibbett knob because it was only about 3 miles round trip. The orange trail left south from wolf gap and climbed a smaller hill before going back up to the top. There were some steep sections right before summitting, which was interesting. Excellent view back north of the valley. I went a little further and bushwhacked to make sure I was on the highest point.
