Tried going with my 2 dogs thru amphitheater but that was a no go. Eventually made it to the summit by climbing the northwest ridge and scrambling thru the forest to the summit. Signed the summit register and headed down.
Went up east ridges to the top, bypassing some fascinating hoodoos. Minor route-finding, but nothing too nasty. Loved it! trip report
Had to break trail from Fort Valley Road. We lost the trail shortly after reached the real trailhead. It is pretty easy to find the amphitheater without the trail though. We then went up the center ridge to the summit and then went down the north ridge. We were socked in most of the time. Still had a great time!
