Ascent Trip Report

A bump up along the ridge in the high plateau area off interstate 81. Been eyeing this one for a while, but was too far for a afternoon trip. Headed further north this time and took the short detour off the highway. Parked at the gate which was closed but not locked and walked up the road. Someone was parked at the tower, but I just walked pasted. Looked for a benchmark, but couldn't find one.
