Ascent Trip Report

Back to get this one done...was supposed to be a bluebird day and warm; not. Total cloud amd mist hike Smokey Mountain style with some showers to boot. Wet leaves and underbrush complicated the ascent. This was even worse on the last uphill through the underbrush to the Pinnacle highpoint. Followed Ed's gametrail which I see on the 1937 topo was a trail up to Old Black along the ridge. Boy is it "unmaintained" today. Steak and Starbuck's to put right with the world again.
