Ascent Trip Report

From Horse Gap Mountain I headed down the northeast slope. This slope is ridiculously steep, especially just before Lays Gap. Very difficult to keep my feet underneath me with snow on the ground. From Lays Gap I tried to follow forest roads to the summit but they didn't go quite where I wanted them to go. The best way up and down is to head up the south slope. It's pretty steep and has a good many boulders but the forest is open and the boulders can be negotiated around pretty easily. On the way back I tried to follow some game trails out of Lays Gap. They were helpful but really didn't go the direction I needed them to...not to my surprise.
