This footage is a very extended version of a shot in the movie — we left from Catawba Mountain Shelter in the ridiculously early morning and walked the 1.7 miles to McAfee Knob in the dark, arriving in time for the sunrise.

I shot about six hours of footage (compressed here into three minutes), and fortunately my very patient hiking partners stayed with me the whole time.
