Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Smith Roach Gap parking area, crossed the road to access the AT, walked a short distance on the AT, then bushwhacked most of the way to the top. Returned roughly the same way I ascended, descending a bit further south than where I ascended. Weedy young forest much of the way and an indistinct (nearly flat) summit. The climb up was steepest about midway.
