Ascent Trip Report

Following ascent of Calloway Peak attempted to summit MacRae. Shortly down trail from Calloway Gap view of mountain from vantage point suggested scrambles were covered in ice. Indeed at first significant rock scramble no exposed rock seen due to snow coverage and so, discretion being the better part of valor, retired to Lost Province Brewing in Boone.
