Ascent Trip Report

Bagged this peak because why not.

From Balsam Gap, I headed up to the top via the MST. It's a short hike, and the high point is located just off trail to the left. Had to fight a little bit of weeds to get there. Behind the summit is a small cliff that yields a great view of the towering Blackstock Knob.
