Ascent Trip Report

The AT runs right over the top of this mountain so there's no missing it. There is also a firetower on top that gives you 360 degree views. The northern slope isn't as steep or rocky as the southern slope. The southern side has some large rocks and can be slightly technical, but that's what makes it fun.
