Made it over to this beautiful summit from Carvers Gap after visiting Roan High Knob & Roan High Bluff earlier in the day. Made for a long day, but a nice one; weather was beautiful.

Wonderful hike with a great view!!! We started predawn and had a gorgeous sunrise to greet us as we reached the summit from Carvers Gap. There was plenty of snow on the ground, but it was quite hard and most of it could easily be walked on without sinking down too much.

After doing both Roan peaks backpacked in to this peak. It is one of my favorite places to camp. Spectacular views, craggy rocks to play on, Rododendrons all around, high elevation, it's a blast! Roan highlands are awesome.

At the cost of rolled ankle, summited on the way from Carver's Gap to Big Yellow Mountain. Returned from Big Yellow the same day to enjoy a spectacular 360 degree fireworks display from Round Bald Summit.

Hiked this from Carver's gap. Conditions that morning were around 60'F or so, but with low clouds giving my hike foggy conditions and winds of around 40MPH or so. But still a great experience to see a 360' view when a break in the clouds happened.

It was very cold and windy, like I like it. Well worth the "side" trail. Why can't all sixers be this good looking?

Missed this one while on the AT in '98, so came back to climb in 2000 with my wife. Not quite enough snow for skis or snowshoes, but plenty for the rednecks sledding at Carvers Gap. Extensive views of fog from the ridge and summit.

Completed as part of a 12-mile "loop" including Roan High Knob and Roan High Bluff. The scenery was incredible. When I arrived I was one of 3 cars in the lot, by the time I got back around 2pm the lot was full with vehicles parked all the way out onto the road!

I hiked this with my mom, bless her... It was a foggy and rainy day in the highlands just after the rhododendron bloom.

Great mountain, great views. Most challenging was a bushwhack out of Roaring Creek. See Route description.

Started from Carvers Gap and walked the AT to the summit of Grassy Ridge. It was very windy and cold that day. After walking through frozen grass, trees, and clouds made the summit and took a few pictures.



The sun finally started to come out on the way down.



Nice hike.

This hike would probably be relatively easy without snow. There is close to 1000 ft. of elevation gain on the way to Grassy Ridge Bald and about a 300 ft. gain on the return trip.

Our trip in early April was done in the midst of an early spring snowstorm. In some sections (primarily in the gaps) snowshoes would have been handy. Given the conditions on this particular day, one could have cross-country skied to the summit.

This hike offered dramatic views of the surrounding Roan Mts. It is a mountain that is no to be missed.
