Ascent Trip Report

Left Mt. Collins Shelter and Northbound on AT to Laurel Top. Skirted East of point 5785 and used loppers to cut a trail on the East slope of the ridgeline as the ridge was nothing but blowdowns. Another bushwack of scrambling through branches with lots of scrapes and cuts. Had a posted guardian at the trail(bushwack)head...thanks Greenmarvel. Also props to NB thruhikers Puffbeard, Celtic Thunder (hope you got your filter back), Tri-dub, Captain Redbeard, Tarheel 2, easymile, space truckin, and the easy bopper. You share the vision.
