i completed the bartram trail section from osage overlook up to scaly mountain. i took the catstairs route which is a steep bushwack up to the big cliffs that the main trail circumvents. i finally found a way up past the bluff by grabbing at small trees and doing a questionable traverse to a familiar rock face i recognized from being up here before. the main trail was a few feet further which was a great relief. scaly mountain has great views and is a perfect spot to take a lunch break. it seems you can almost reach out and touch rabun bald to the south. total distance around 4 miles. a great adventure.
