Ascent Trip Report

Figured I would bushwhack up the ridge from our campsite and meet the Flat Rock trail and save a few hundred yards. Bad choice. I crested the ridge, dropped down and found the Warner Trail, which I continued on for a few hundred feet until I hit the Buck Ridge Haul Road, and I knew I was too far east. Instead of backtracking (the smart move), I just bushwhacked over Buck ridge and dropped down to the Wagon Wheel trail intersection. From there I followed the normal route.
