Standing on one of the summit boulders, it's easy to understand how Sharp Top was once thought to be the highest peak in Virginia.

wow.

Whats the prominence of that mountain?? Looks like it could be 4000 from peak to foot. That is a super-nice view.

Relief.

I think Sharp Top stands about 1500 feet above its base. Flat Top (which actually looks "sharper" than Sharp Top) is about 1800 feet above its base. They're impressive and imposing peaks.
