Ascent Trip Report

Heading westbound on the Gregory Bald Trail, I bushwhacked directly south up the north slope of the peak. The 'whack was easy at first but in order to get to the summit I had to shove through thorny weeds. The entire summit is coated in the stuff. I believe the high point is right where a big tree is, but I walked around a little bit just to be sure. No views, but I saw a bunch of dog tags nailed into trees in this one area.
