I dropped down from Locust Gap and used the gated forest road on the east side for the return trip.

Date Climbed: Dec 14, 2008


North from the NOC to Stecoah Gap. The ups and downs on the way out got old, especially with 30 pounds on my back. It was pretty cloudy out, but still had some nice views. Some idiot had unfortunately littered the summit with religious pamphlets.

Actually, I never got stung. But I got a free trekking pole that some poor hiker had apparently left behind while fleeing the freshly opened hive of yellow jackets on the AT about 2 miles south of the summit. I hiked up from the Nantahala Gorge, which makes for about 3400 feet of elevation gain over 8 miles-- this is pretty rough for the Southern Appalachians (or maybe just me). Either way, this fella kicked my @$$ that day and on 10/14/06 when I day-hiked it up and back. Awesome experience though-- both times.

Seeing the summit sign came as a bit of a surprise since it was tacked to a tree and I was in the woods. There was some open area to the south but not much. The southern Balds are really a thing of the past. AT nobo.

Very pretty trail with little ups and downs. Partial view from top. It's more like a cutblock on the side of the top. Not the best destination.

The trip is 11 moderately tough miles with 20 lbs on your back. It took about 2.5 hours to the top and the same in return. There was a light freezing rain and sleet with temps near 30 degrees. Going up and down each sub peak proved to get old after a while.
