Ascent Trip Report

Hit hawksbill from the road, going up the steeper trail. Kept it to a steady walk instead of trying to run up since the big race is in a week. Weather was nice at 4,000 close to 20 degrees cooler than below. Decent crowd at the top, looked for a benchmark but couldn't find any. Went down via the salamander trail to the AT.
