Ascent Trip Report

The summit of Old Black is a short bushwhack off the AT. But it's pretty open, especially in winter. This was the first of three bushwhacks to summits for the day (the others were Guyot and Chapman). It was also the easiest - more blackberries than trees and logs to get through.
