Ascent Trip Report

Parked at 74A at the Eastern Continental Divide and began walking up Little Pisgah Mountain Road. We came upon one car coming down the road as we ascended.

Near the summit there are several houses that were vacated today.

On the descent from the summit we opted to bushwhack down from the tower to avoid the icy road. The final mile of the climb was shaded by rhododendron bushes so the snow and ice had difficulty melting.
