technicolorNHThird and last mountain of the day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 11, 2015


Just a quick jaunt to play on the rock pile before a thunderstorm rolled through the area. Any chance of going to Trayfoot Mountain will have to wait until next time.

Did this combo with my dog, Athena. Blackrock was a fun stop on the way to and from the summit of Trayfoot.

I started from the Blackrock Summit parking area, which is not really fair. But I made up for it by then going nearby Treyfoot, and then descending all the way down to the Paine Run trail and going all the way up back to Blackrock. My butt was well kicked. Saw a bear afterward.

I've scrambled up this Blackrock numerous times, usually on my way to or from Furnace Mountain and/or Trayfoot Mountain.

It was a fun little hike. I made it to the top only to find high winds and thunder rolling in. I got out of there ASAP!

Spring was just starting. It was cold and windy at the summit, but the views were fantastic! The side trip to Trayfoot Mountain was worth it.

I learned how to rappel here during a brief snow storm back in early 2005. As usual, thanks Aarash and Outdoors at UVA!!!

Blackrock finished up a beautiful three day backcountry trip where we traversed Austin Mountain and climbed Furnace and Trayfoot Mountain as well. We watched a huge thunderstorm building while on the summit. The views were spectacular.

2nd hike of the day. The skies were clear, and the rock piles tremendous! This was definitely worth the trip.
