What do you see as the hardest climb in the South? Going into the Smokies?

That climb, which continues to Cheoah Bald, is a long slog up, that's 
for sure. 


I've taken Boy Scouts there a couple times and the problem is once they 
reach the shelter it's hard to get them up the last 1/2 mile or so to 
the top.


This weekend we're headed to Snowbird Mountain, starting from the 
Waterville exit on I-40, which is another fun climb with a rewarding 
view at the top.

I never thought there was much to it. Been South 2-3 times and North 
4-5 times there. Not absolutely sure.

My opinion of hardest climb in the South was NOC to Sassafras Gap. But 
everyone feels differently.
