Ascent Trip Report

I parked just south of the 'Little Devils Staircase Overlook' at a pullout with a trailhead leading to the AT. As you can see from the associated GPS track, this could be done much faster by cutting stright up to Hogback's summit from the North instead of wrapping around and approching from the south. My route was 1.4 miles, which involved some walking around.
