Ascent Trip Report

From Potato Knob, I continued northbound past the cabins to the radio road, discovering in hindsight that I had been trespassing. Since I work for the organization that has the radio towers, I decided not to trespass there, too. The gate appears to be about 20 vertical feet below the summit.

I continued on to Mt. Gibbes.
