Ascent Trip Report

East of Morgantown on Interstate-68, I exited at Coopers Rock, then drove north and north again at a fork, following a steep road up a hill to a camping area at the end of the pavement. The road goes another couple miles to near the summit, but the county line is drawn below the top, so I had to gauge its location as best as I could using landmarks, plus walking around.

By now, it was dusky, and I hightailed it off the mountain and back into Morgantown, where I stayed the night. The storms were quite loud and active during the night.
