Ascent Trip Report

I crossed the summit of this highpoint en route to Flint Knob from Rabun Bald to the east. This is actually an unnamed hill just east of Flint Knob and doesn't really deserve individual recognition, but since somebody else registered this point and it is actually about 160 feet higher than Flint Knob to the west, I logged it for myself as well. I almost made a stupid mistake thinking I had summited Flint Knob when I had only reached this highpoint. Apparently, I was not the first climber to make this mistake, because the trail appeared less traveled as I continued to the west to Bald Knob. The highest point on Flint Knob (east) seemed to be about 20 feet north of the trail.
