About Mt. Rogers:

This is not solely a climbing destination; however, with that being said, if you are in the area, this magical place should not be overlooked. There is no actual climbing on Mt. Rogers, but there are several hundred boulders if you hike on the AT towards Grayson Highlands that could warrant some exploring. If you are looking for a backpacking destination with the occasional bouldering break look no further. If not for the climbing, this area is definitely worth the hike just to experience it.
Nearest town or city: Damascus
Directions: From Damascus drive east on US58 and merge left on to 603 3-4 miles outside of town. Take a right on to 600 and park at Elk Garden. Hike east towards Mt. Rogers(1.75Mi.). PM me for faster directions from 81. For bouldering either go to Grayson Highlands and park there or continue hiking east on the AT and you will see it.
