Ascent Trip Report

Ascended from AT northwest of the peak. According to GPS, we left the trail approximately 480 feet from the summit. Being midsummer, the vegetation was thick, and it grows thicker as elevation increases. The summit is shrouded with blackberry, and it is difficult to get to the summit. There is a triangular aluminum marker at the summit that says "NC Geodetic Survey". The TN/NC boundary runs across the top of this peak.
