This was to be my second time out of seven climbing the Chimneys in 2007. This was an awesome-fun hike and scramble; so far the best peak I've found in the Smokies. This mountain just makes me crave more scrambling.The traverse to the second Chimney is crazy fun; I'm now a scrambling junkie trying to get a fix. Heaven help me if I can get out west and climb some 14ers

We came, we conquered, but we saw nothing. Completely socked in though the clouds looked hopeful when we started. I will never go to the Smokies in the summer again except for the waterfalls - crisp low humidity fall is the time to go.

I hiked up there with my wife Noelle. The only drawback was the annoying group of boy scouts and their leaders at the summit.

Had a few hours in the late afternoon to spare so I decided to climb chimney tops. I'd driven past it a few times & always wanted to stop. It was a fun climb, pretty easy for the most part until the end. The scramble to the top was a lot of fun. The skies were clear and there were great views in all directions.

Really crowded at the top. I hiked it via AT then Road Prong; heppily I caught a ride at Indian Gap on the way back and didn't have to hike the last 1.7 miles. Next time, I leave the crowds and go to the lower chimney.

Fun little hike, the scramble at the end was pretty cool and the views along the trail at the top were great. A must do if you are in the area.

Nice hike/climb with my wife and brother. It would have been better but for a large Baptist youth group proselytizing along the trail.

The climb is a little tough. A big elevation change. The scramble at the end was very fun, but the best is the view from the top!! On a good day you can see for miles!!

Great hike, I did it with two of my best friends, Slick858 was one of em. Beautiful views but it was quite a big elevation change for a 2 mile trail. I loved the class 2 climb at the summit. Great hike, the view is well worth the some 1700ft elevation change.

Fun little hike with my girlfriend. The top was fun, climbed up the steepest part I could find. I also continued out to the lower peak at the end of the ridge. A good time was had by all.

Beautiful and lush place to go for a little jog. There's a fun scramble at the end with good views.

This is a good hike. Being an alpinist at heart, this is the best hike I've had in the Smokies from an technical standpoint (the third class scramble makes it). Actually if you go up the rock about 25 yards before the trail turns up, you can do a fun 4th class crack that is way better than the "trail" that ends up with one hand on rock and the other on dirt, roots, etc. Can't wait to go back in winter. the traverse to the lower peak looked interesting. Will do that next time.



1:20 round trip travel time. Good summit.



I was impressed...
