Ascent Trip Report

Bagged this peak while coming up the Old Butt Knob trail.

Unlike the two peaks before it, getting to the true summit of this peak required a little bit of moderate off-trail travel. I found a deer path through the thick vegetation to what appeared to be the highest ground. Like many of the summits in Shining Rock, it was pretty broad and flat, so I tagged multiple possible high points before 'whacking back to the trail.
