Ascent Trip Report

Hiked to Ramsey Cascades with Katie (The Great Explorer). Wanted to see if I could fit Greenbrier Pinnacle in while Katie waited. Went in to the first switchback but it was obviously going to require more time than I had, so we will save this one for later. For those that want to make the effort, the manway is in great shape as far as I went in. Very obvious trailhead off the Ramsey Cascade trail where it used to loop back. The trailhead used to service a firetower on Greenbrier. From the tower footings, you would need to head east along the ridge top to summit. Good luck and please fill a trip report, so I know what to expect next year when I come back.
