| Location:||USA-North Carolina|
| Elevation:||5976 ft / 1821 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThe faint trail to the summit begins on the north/northeast side of the mountain. It started out as being pretty easy...not much brush in the way. Around 5,976' the fir trees got amazingly dense and practically impassible. Perhaps there is a better way to the summit but I was strapped for time so I headed back down to the MST.
