This peak is the so-called grandstand for viewing the Nantahalas in North Carolina and the Blue Ridge in Georgia. Climbing this peak, to its open rocky summit, is less strenuous from the South. The approach from the North ascends 600 ft. in just under a mile. There are huge boulder-fields, worth exploring, on the North face. To the South, one can see portions of the Tray Mountain Wilderness Area and the headwaters of the Soque River. There is no shelter on the summit, but you will find one just 1/2 mile to the North and to the left off of the A.T.

    Not very glamorous, but hey, it's Georgia. Excellent views upon summit with several excellent campsites also sporting excellent views.
