Route Climbed: Summit Road Date Climbed: October 21, 2005
There was cones blocking the road, but some people around said it was okay to go through anyway. There's like nothing to see. Nothing! Plus SC drivers are slow pokes. Oh well, still it's another HP to add to the collection.
Route Climbed: From the parking lot Date Climbed: Sept 6, 2003
The hardest part about this highpoint is finding the road to get up to it. Once I got to the top I wasn't even sure that I was in the correct spot until I found the survey marker. I was expecting some sort of sign saying that I was at the highest point in SC... With trees obscuring the view - not much in the way to look at either...
Due to ice, my friend and I had to hike up most of the road to South Carolina's highest point. We walked to the side a little bit and saw some decent view of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains through the trees. The summit is well marked.
