Ascent Trip Report

The final peak I bagged on my Big Butt-loving adventure.

Coming down from Walker Knob, and minding the daylight time on the shortest day of the year, I booked it up to the summit via the MST. After climbing all the way up from Cane River Gap I was really feeling the ascent. There was a good amount of snow up along the ridge. Made it to the summit, tagged it, and booked it back down to Cane River Gap just in time to see the sunset.
