Ascent Trip Report

After hiking the Black Mtn Crest trail out to Cattail Peak and back, I did the quick walk up Mt Mitchell.

As part of the longer hike, I think this is a qualifying ascent for Mitchell according to South Beyond 6000 standards. Total mileage 6.6 miles per park map and total climb 2120.
