|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-North Carolina|

Ascent Trip ReportHiked up Profile Trail to the Grandfather Trail. Turned north and summited Grandfather (Calloway Peak) then followed Grandfather Trail south to Attic Window Peak and McRae Peak (the Raven Rocks)before returning via Profile. Left truck at 9 AM, returned at 4:30 PM, very few minutes down time in that span...steady moving most of the day, but slow because of snow and ice. Winter storm three days ago dumped significant snow, and there was still plenty of snow and ice on the ridge. Navigating would have been impossible without microspikes.
