    Camping on a bald is sort of an option, but not a very good one. If a thunderstorm blows in overnight your in serious do-do.

    No doubt twisted an ankle on the knife edge or Wolfs Rocks. It was fun doing that section in the rain.

    What's even more interesting is the links to the other news in PA, dangerous place to be.

    If your speaking of Owl's Head in the Pemi, it's not really a trail, more of a crazy near vertical 1000 foot scramble up a rock side. Man, that climb took a lot longer then expected. Getting back...

    Apparently there are a significant number of people who don't know or don't care. The FS tried to close trailhead parking lots here in the Whites, that lasted one weekend and they gave up.

    So, start at Lemon gap on TN107. Adds 15 miles, but what the heck? Lots easier to get to. With an early afternoon start, you'd make Roaring Fork shelter okay. Lunch on top of Max Patch the next day.
