Route Climbed: Arkaquah Trail Date Climbed: May 2005  Sucess!

Doing an approach trail, such as Arkaquah Trail or Jacob's Knob make it a little more of a challenge. I did this on a clear spring day and could see all the way back to Atlanta from the summit.

Highpoint #21. This is probably one of the few two-day ascents of this mountain. We arrived a few minutes before midnight and left just afterwards, hoping to bag GA-SC-NC-TN-VA-KY in 24 hours.

Steep walk to the top but the view was worth it. Lovely day with lots of sunshine and a slight breeze!

Route Climbed: Jack's Knob Trail Date Climbed: June 10, 2005  Sucess!

Very foggy/drizzly day. the rhododendrons near the summit were in blume. Oddly enough, we passed no one on the trail and there was not anyone at the observation deck at the summit.

Ran up and down 4 times striaght once training for a marathon. This was when we were visiting friends who live close by, in fact ran the Hogpen Hill climb in Helen, which is a race 12 miles straight up. Back in the 1990's, took my young daughters all the time. They loved the mist and fog on the trail, early mornings. Cheers.

Route Climbed: paved road Date Climbed: April 23, 2005

Only headed to the parking lot for the TOUR DE GEORGIA bike race. (Lance finished third, I think.) Late April in Georgia and who'd have guessed that there'd be snow flurries all day? I wore my shorts and Tevas, but gave up my fleece to an ungrateful woman.

Route Climbed: Tour de Georgia Date Climbed: April 23, 2005  Sucess!

This mountain is best climbed by bike (or running alongside Lance).

Route Climbed: Auto Road Date Climbed: 15 March 2005  Sucess!

Yes I'm signing the register twice! After leaving the summit and getting ~40 miles toward Atlanta, I realized that my sunglasses were still on Georgia's highest point. Even though they're "cheapos", I always have a hard time finding ones that don't make me look like a bug. Begrudgingly, I drove back up as darkness was fast approaching. Happy to find the lower gate still open, I jogged up through the rain to find my glasses exactly where I thought they would be!

Route Climbed: Walkway Date Climbed: 15 March 2005  Sucess!

A quick jog up the trail to find the tower fenced off. I climbed up a crumbly & mossy Class 3 dihedral on the north side of the summit to reach the top.

Route Climbed: path from parking lot Date Climbed: Sept 6, 2003  Sucess!

Unfortunately the morning I was here there was dense fog and could not see anything from the summit. I liked the old wagon trail that was still there from back in the days when people went up here with horse and buggy.

Route Climbed: Drive up, and Jack's Knob Trail. Date Climbed: Many times, 1965 to 2001.  Sucess!

Started going up to Brasstown Bald when I was eight years old. I haven't been up there in about four years, though. Glad someone finally did a summitpost for the highest mountain in my home state.

Route Climbed: 180 Spur road, on snow Date Climbed: 1/4/02  Sucess!

We climbed Brasstown Bald, via the road, which was covered in snow. It was over 3 miles to the summit, and the stars were spectacular!
