Ascent Trip Report

This was part of a hike to Celo Knob, and most of the details are in my Celo trip report.

The Black Mountain Crest Trail crosses the western shoulder of Gibbs Mountain, 0.7 miles south of the double-staked trail junction that marks the path up Celo Knob. The top of Gibbs is accessed by an overgrown manway that was flagged with pink-and-black ribbons. Look for one of these ribbons on the east side of the trail at N35.84081 W082.24919 (NAD 27). This spot is also marked by two old spruce or fir trees on the west side of the trail, which otherwise is open meadows to the west. The summit is a rocky ridge, and the highest ground might be a little south of the top ribbon.
