I found the info on this page to be very useful in reaching the top: http://www.carolinamtnclub.com/SB6K/SB6K%20Great%20Balsams.htm
Also, I found pink ribbon tape tied on the trees and very easy to follow to the top. I did not find this bushwhack to be difficult at all. Just follow the instructions on how to get there on the Carolina Mountain Club page and it should be easy.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
