I was wondering how long it would take for someone to post this area. Back in 1997 to 1999 by roommate and I cleaned and developed many problems in this area and along with other areas on the AT. I have a mini guide someplace that we wrote up. I'll see if I can find it. I know there were climbers on some of these boulders before us because we would find random rusted pitons on top that someone may have used as a top rope anchor but most of these problems had vines growing over them. There are some difficult problems on the roofs with a couple only seeing one ascent.
