On our way from Skyland to Big Meadows, Rich and I stopped at Crescent Rock Overlook to search for this mark, our third in the "MLS" series. [The others were 119 MLS (AI5758) and 120 MLS.] This was a relatively easy find. The details on the datasheet check out, and the disk is in good condition. I regret that I didn't use a tripod when taking my photos. This area is very dark under heavy tree cover in the Summer.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS.
