Ascent Trip Report

... hiked Blood Mtn the day before, starting day driving from Neel's Gap AMC Hostel, in a snow storm of a high roads flurry to Rabun Bald so reaching that summit across an upper trail snow covered, easily reaching tower views (no ice); the afternoon drive back to the Jacks Knob Trailhead still found the summit road to Brasstown Bald closed due to snow & ice, so my ascent of South Wolfpen Ridge was solo breaking a snow covered trail in cold weather to a deserted Brasstown Bald, exploring an Observation Tower all dressed up in white, descended via Spur Rte 180 skirting patches of ice to dried out road midway.
