I took this one on January 9, 2005 from the summit of Whitetop Mountain in Virginia. A view of that peak I had never seen.

Not Grandfather

Actually, the rugged peak in this shot is Three Top Mountain, an awesome hike in its own right with knife edge ridgelines and great views. Grandfather is out of the picture to the right and considerably farther away.

Re: Not Grandfather

I'll be damned.

Yep, Three Top is on my list to bag. Just haven't gotten it done, yet.

Re: Not Grandfather

I highly recommend it. I've been up there twice. The first time involved a bad bushwhack up the west side. Last time I followed a decent trail most of the way with some scrambling and routefinding required on the rocks near the top. The final summit scramble was up the west side. Here is a link to a Google map that shows my approximate route: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&ll=36.412372,-81.603785&spn=0.048904,0.075188&t=p&z=14&msid=116574247822108210529.00045063860c6e64cb680
