There are a handful of older established boulder problems scattered along Sharp Top Trail at the Peaks of Otter, but to my understanding there are some access issues pertaining to climbing in this area which has hindered development in the past. I am not sure if these access issues still apply, but it is worth keeping in mind. Although The Hill is technically under the same jurisdiction, a lot of the land at The Hill is owned by the Blue Ridge Parkway, so the majority there is good to go. If anyone looks into this it would be great to know, Sharp Top Looks amazing! Break On Through sounds great Elliot!
