Ascent Trip Report

Did this as part of a two-vehicle hike from Montebello Fish Hatchery to Crabtree Falls.

My only comment is for anyone taking a standard car up to Crabtree Upper lot, take it slow and scout the tricky parts. It is possible to do it on VA 826, but be aware there are two open stream crossings (1 clean, 1 a bit sketchy right now) that could get worse with a higher water level and washouts.
