Hiked from Swinging Bridge  Sucess!

Did the ladder. I don't know the difficulty of it as a boulder problem.

3rd of three  Sucess!

I caught this one on the way back, after getting the other two. The ice slide on the north side was quite entertaining, even with the cable to help.

MacRae Peak  Sucess!

Hiked up Profile Trail and camped up on the ridge. The next morning we up to Calloway Peak, then out to Attic Window and MacRae Peak before heading back down Profile Trail. Beautiful views and some great scrambling.

The Trifecta  Sucess!

Climbed MacRae as part of a traverse of Grandfather Mountain. Went up the Profile Trail and hit Calloway first and then Attic Window and MacRae. A beautiful hike on a very rugged trail. Highly recommended!

From Hiker's Parking Lot  Sucess!

My brother-in-law and I started out around 10:30 am with the intent to hike all the way to Calloway Peak. Well, it seems that most people just do MaCrae Peak and call it a day. My brother-in-law wasn't having a good day so he was good with just the one peak. I found a younger guy willing to press on through the clouds to the next peak. There were certainly tens if not in the hundreds of people on Grandfather Mountain the Sunday before Labor Day.

Grandfather Mtn Trail  Sucess!

Enjoyed this summit along with Window Attic. I'm sorry we didn't include Calloway, but our flight arrived late the night before and, combined with the time change, we had to sleep in a bit the next morning. The onwers demand you're off the trail by 6:00 PM, and we frankly ran out of time to continue on. Next time, next time...

I really loved this trail...the ladders, the cables, it was a lot of fun. The views seemed to go on forever. I'm sorry there is no SP page for Window Attic, a beautiful peak and fun ascent.

Climbing partner: Husband.

Grandfather Trail -Dec 08  Sucess!

Fun climb up top. The ladders and steep sections were a blast. No views and very windy conditions up top.

Incredible view, climb, and WIND  Sucess!

Set out from Black Rock trailhead up to the swinging bridge; then on to Window Attic Peak, Calloway Peak and back. The wind on the mountain was something else-- standing up was a chore, even at the parking area. The view along the grandfather trail was the best I have experienced on any trail. Amazing mountain; I will return.

Hot, Humid and Harder than Expected  Sucess!

Nice hike on a hot and humid day. We got chased off of the trail by lightning.

Grandfather Trail  Sucess!

Took the Grandfather Trail from the Swinging Bridge out to Calloway and back. A word of advice about the alternate Underwood Trail around McRae..."alternate" does not mean "easier" knees are killing me:( A great peak though!

Winter Fun  Sucess!

I had a great winter hike up the Profile Trail to MacRae peak. Plently of snow and ice and great clear winter views along the way.

Route Climbed: Grandfather Mountain trail Date Climbed: Oct.18,2004  Sucess!

I originally planed on hiking to Calloway peak and up MacRae and Window Attic on the way but the mountain was closed due to near 100mph gusts on that day and the next day all I had time to due was MacRae and it was highly worth it!! Cant wait to go back.
