Ascent Trip ReportAfter picking up Round Head overlook headed back on the AT. Bushwhacked south to pick up the Caleb Frantz Memorial Trail right at a sign, which was lucky. Signed the register at the top (been a while since I signed something). Headed back on the orange trail. Trail was nicer than the AT, should have gone out on it first.
