Route Climbed: Deep Gap Trail. Date Climbed: 11-10-2004
This was my first climb of Mount Craig. The weather was perfect for this time of the year. It was cool, but not too cold. I encountered just a few patches of ice. The deep balsam forests in the gaps were chilly, but the exposed peaks were comfortable until the sun began to set and the wind picked up. One of the most spectacular peaks in the southern US. Even more impressive than the nearby, and higher, Mount Mitchell.
