Ascent Trip Report

Followed Bartram down off Rabun Bald and passed Flint Gap and followed to campsite at Saltrock Gap at 3700 feet. Continued up Bartram Trail till we could see the best bushwhack up flatrock without getting into briars and found a few faint herd trails or potentially a peakbagger's path but no flagging. No real views.
