Ascent Trip Report

After a failed attempt of Table Rock, SC due to weather and scrapped plans to go to Yonah Mountain, GA was looking for somewhere relatively close that I hadn't been before. Decided Looking Glass Rock was a good option. Left Clemson with an ROTC friend, Ella, at about 0600 and arrived to trailhead at about 0730. Brevard, NC is a very nice town. Took about 1h 15m to reach summit. Summitted at about 0850. Ate a snack and took photos at the top. Had the whole summit to ourselves. Watched the clouds roll off the mountains in Shining Rock Wilderness. Encountered about ten people on the way down. We were probably first ones that day. Started our descent around 0930. Reached the car at 1026 hours. Temperature ranged from 55 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Cloudy up until last half mile on the way down when the sun came out. Overall beautiful hike and great weather.
