Ascent Trip Report

Climbed Coosa and Slaughter as part of weekend backpacking trip on Coosa Backcountry Trail. Coosa summit is easy to find along Duncan Ridge Trail. Decent winter view from summit. Slaughter is more difficult to reach. Ditched packs at spot where DRT/Coosa trail started to descend and turn away from summit of Slaughter. Steep but fairly easy bushwhack up to summit. Summit is rocky and interesting, but no clear views like on Blood. Decent winter view near summit.
