Ascent Trip Report

A southbound bushwhack .... 500 yards, 17 minutes RT

We parked at the Santeetlah Parking, elev 5377', north of the summit at the bend in the Skyway, Mile Marker 7 is 150 yards to the east.

I scrambled up the embankment and whacked southbound to the wooded summit in open woods with some thorny underbrush, easy. The HP is not obvious, no views, rated for "PBers only".
