Started at a little before 4p on a Tuesday. Wind wasn't bad on the lower trail, but swirling winds were rough up top, above Mundy's Gap. I had only run the lower ~3.5 miles of this route before, which was very runnable, as far as climbs go. I was a little surprised at the technicality of the trail after Mundy's Gap. The route seems to just get steeper the higher you go. I reached the summit just before sundown. I took one soft flask with water in my running vest and took no calories.
No doubt my time could easily be destroyed by someone who is a great climber, especially if familiar with the route.
