From there I headed cross country directly towards the summit. I had to jump a barbed wire fence and then I hit some steep logging roads that I used to gain more elevation. Eventually, I ran out of help and just headed directly towards the summit. There was some areas of brush that I skirted, but eventually I reached the flat summit area. At one time there were some comm buildings on the summit, but now there is just left over junk. I found the highpoint to be a pile of rocks under some trees. I returned to my truck by the same route. Since it was February when I climbed Black Mountain, there were some patches of snow on the route and the summit.
This was a steep climb. Total was only 3 miles round trip, took 3 hours, and gained a little over 2,000 ft. 2/19/2005
