Ascent Trip ReportUsed Tom Layton's directions. Some folks were camped to the left at the initial turn off of 600 onto Whitetop Rd. That is private land. I parked in a little lot that is the access to that private land. Lot is accessed from 600 just below (south of) Whitetop Road. Landowners had no objection to my briefly parking there.
I crossed 600 and headed up grassy track that shortly disappeared. I continued up the somewhat wide ridge. Initial hike was on a gentle grade but near the summit the grade increased. No discernible trail, but the travel was easy. On the flat summit there were a couple outcrops. The one to the west and almost on a cliff face seemed to be the highest. No views except perhaps in winter. 30 minutes total car to car.
