Ascent Trip Report

Drove up to the Blackburn Trail Center and took the south AT down, then up Wilson Gap. Tagged a few outcroppings that looked higher than the surrounding terrain just in case. I then passed below (east) of the highpoint and gained the ridge south of the HP. This way I was sure I could tag all candidates. On the way back, hit Blue Ridge-Wilson Gap North. This was less straightforward and several outcroppings seem to contend.
