Impressive Doog! Kings in a day is no easy feat. 'Twas a three-day trip for me.

Thank you good sir!! My legs are going to hate me for awhile. One more and I'm finally halfway. I only did one high point last year :( I wish I did more on the east coast before moving

What would you rank your top 3 most difficult? I noticed you've done Elbert, Kings, and Wheeler. I've done Elbert, and am consider Kings *or* Wheeler next.

Probably those 3 so far. I wasn't to acclimitized for elbert or wheeler. I climbed Audubon which is a 13er out here sat and had no problem, but once I got to the dollar lake are at kings on thurs I started struggling but I was also rushing trying to make good time which probably hurt my acclimitizing. Kings and wheeler are fun. I don't recommend kings in a day. Glad my death march is done. I say I felt the most accomplished when I did kings. Once you get to the mountain it's an awesome climb. I should of done humphries peak 2 years ago but due to construction I couldn't get an early start and decided my to. Honorable mention to harneys peak. Hotoven, knoback, and I did a mini alpine route up harneys peak. That was sweet and way more crazy then the regular trail. I hiked mt Mitchell in the rain.

Just did Elbert today, wonderful hike. I'm glad I live at 9,100 feet, or else it would have kicked my butt.

Glad to see you back here Doogie, will have to hook up sometime and nail some back-country 13ers!

I just wanted to check in, read the last 100 or so posts, and say hi.

Great seeing so many ramping up their highpoint adventures in the summer season.

After last October in North Carolina, Cypress and I haven't climbed anything else. We have tentative plans to climb one or two from a list of SC, Ga, and Tenn- the last of what is traditionally considered the Southern Appalachians (though for my money Cheaha in Alabama should also count, as it is at the bottom of the range). Her schedule is as busy as mine now, but we have agreed to climb at least one or two a year even in off years, to keep some kind of momentum going.

We may save Tennessee for next year because I think the Highpointers Convention is there next year. So hopefully we will do SC and Ga this year. I have been at 24 HP's since last summer and would like to finally get to halfway!

Doogie / Hotoven - good to see you guys still banging out highpoints - and doing so in an impressive manner!

FYI all: The Blue Ridge Parkway from Asheville to Mt Mitchell State Park is closed. Plan your trips accordingly. There is a detour route described in the article below.

"Rangers are installing detour signs and advising northbound drivers to exit the parkway at U.S. 70, take Interstate 40 east to N.C. 221 near Marion, all the way to the parkway. This route takes about an hour and a half."
