Ascent Trip Report

Dispersed camped the night before next to Gandy Creek in the Monongahela NF, woke up way too early (3:30am) broke camp and drove to the summit. Turns out the sunrise wasn't until 7:30ish! Lots of time to myself in the dark, but worth it as I got to watch the sunrise on the watchtower all by myself. Fall foliage was still decent, windy, but great view from this obvious highpoint.
