Ascent Trip Report

I followed previous trip reports to drive up to the microwave towers. From there it's just a few feet to the high point rocks. I wandered around a little, ate a snack, talked to a microwave maintenance technician ,and then headed down. The road was a bit rough but not as bad as some previous reports led me to expect. No mud puddles liek those I encountered the day before on Flagpole (Rockingham County).
