Ascent Trip ReportStarted out at the Wolverton campground and ascended by maintained trail via Panther Gap.
Pretty cold... the water in my bottle was freezing up. We ascended into a cloud around 9500 feet, which obscured the view entirely for the last couple miles =/ There was some light snow for much of the way. It was a great hike though with lots of different scenery to keep things interesting.
