DescriptionNorth Carolina's Black Mountain Range probably holds the best alpine snow and ice routes in the Southeast. These routes are huge with 3K+ elevation change, 1 to 4 hour approaches (and descents), humbling bushwhacking, and hundreds to a thousand plus plus feet of everything from steep snow to technical ice.
The remote and committing nature of these routes require a pre dawn start, map, compass, and/or GPS, and the knowledge to use them (i.e., waypoint your vehicle).
An accident up there would require a helicopter short haul and more than one party had to call the Yancy County Sheriff's Department for assistance...
Please give these routes and the range the respect they deserve.
