Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Stepps Gap and took the access road heading left to the point where we started a bushwhack up Mt. Gibbes. After a little while making way through thick woods and scrub, we made it to the summit, where we found the benchmark. Took a slightly more direct line back to the road and walked it back to Stepps Gap, took a water break, then headed for our next objective, Mt. Hallback.
