|Date:||Saturday, February 19, 2011|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Motorized Transport to Summit:||Car|
| Elevation:||4139 ft / 1261 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI don't know if the mining company has relented, but I did not see a single warning or no-trespassing sign on the drive up.
The BM is slightly off the summit on a boulder SE of the tower, behind a new monument to a local cable TV pioneer.
COHPers who come this far should also bag the Lee County Va HP, which is a 5-mile roundtrip hike from the access road to Black Mountain.
My 7th SHP and 56th COHP (1st of 5 today).
