Ascent Trip Report

Walked up the SW ridge from the Harveys Knob Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway (bushwhack, don't follow the AT which crosses the road here). Windy but clear day with decent views (that would no doubt be largely obscured in summer). Some rocks along the ridge line and a pretty obvious summit boulder.
