| Location:||USA-North Carolina|
| Elevation:||6169 ft / 1880 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThis summit wasn't much fun. It's a long bushwhack on an old decommissioned trail. The trail is obvious though it's tagged with orange ribbons. It's quite overgrown in spots and there are dozens upon dozens of blowdowns to navigate through the entire way. Most are easy to hop over but some are a bit tricky. Mount Hardison would be good to summit along the way but I chose not to since time was running out for me.
