Ascent Trip Report

Bagged this nondescript summit as I approached Balsam Gap. Coming down from Point Misery, there are two "bumps" along the ridgeline that could be the summit (the map here says the north bump is higher) so I tagged both. When heading south, the north bump is just off trail to the left, and the south bump is off trail to the left and can be reached by a fifteen foot bushwhack.
