Nice hike  Sucess!

It was rainy and foggy the whole time, but we used the Pinnacle trail to the top and back. Made for a nice, short hike.

Pinnacle Trail  Sucess!

While visiting my sister in Charlotte, I just had to get out and what a treat this peak was. There were quite a few people on the mountain for the last day of the year. I then toured the Revolutionary War battleground which is well worth the visit.

Route Climbed: Pinnacle Trail  Sucess!

Nice short hike. The views were beautiful and I thought it was neat to be able to spot the Appalachian Mountains to one side and the skyscrapers of Charlotte to the other. Thanks for the page Bob!!!

Route Climbed: All hiking trails;many rock climbs since 1999 Date Climbed: Since 1996  Sucess!

This is where I learned to rock climb. First route was the 5.8 The bear on toprope . Very crowded on weekend hence the nickname 'Crowded Mountain'. I did alot of adventure race training there running with pack and rappels and scrambling off trail. Great place.

Route Climbed: The Pinnacle Trail. Date Climbed: Many times.  Sucess!

A very nice local mountain. The nearest mountain for me to climb (less than 30 mile drive). It's a strenuous climb of a bit less than 2 miles, and well worth the trip. There are fine views and lots of exposed rock at the summit.

The second time I used The Pinnacle Trail was the first time I saw an otter in the wild. It came out of the dry forest about ten yards in front of me and stood on the trail looking at me. Took me a few seconds to realize what I was seeing. I'd never seen a wild otter before, never expected to see one, and couldn't figure out what kind of animal I was looking at. For a few seconds, it might as well have been a Martian as far as I was concerned. As soon as I figured out what I was seeing, he moved on into the pines and vanished.
