Nice quiet forty minute hike to the summit. It was a hot day for mid May.

Date Climbed: Dec 11, 2010


This mountain is a decent workout with a winter surprise a little south of the summit. There's a spring that freezes into a 16' high and 30' wide wall of ice. It's very pretty, and visible from the AT. It's one of my "ice bouldering" sites. You can practice your ice climbing form with minimal gear, without the painful penalty for failure.

I climbed it on 17 and 18 October. (I liked it so much the first time, I did it again the next day.)

It was a good day for a hike. In spite of the haze, the views from the overlook were good. I saw Rocky Mount, Beldor Ridge, Hanse Mountain, and many other peaks in SNP. There was a side trail to the summit that was easy to follow.

Great views from the overlook. It was a bit chilly and windy up there, not a typical June day. A good hike, without much other traffic.

A nice clear day in December. The trail is steep at parts. The overlook near the summit is excellent, although the summit itself is a 100 yard bushwhack.
