Ascent Trip ReportI had previously attempted Rocky Mountain from the Yankee Horse Camp parking area off the Blue Ridge Parkway, but ran out of time. There was a series of old roads on the topographical maps that intrigued me. It seemed like they were a short, steep hike along the waterfall, and you could gain the roads, and follow them to the top. This is exactly what I found. I stuck to the west side of the waterfall in 4 inches of snow. As I got to the to of the waterfalls, I could see the roadgrade ahead. I turned south-west to intercept the road, which headed south-east. Once on the road, it switched back and forth up the mountain, and within a quarter mile of the summit along a flat area I bushwhacked directly toward the top, intercepting the active road (the road I was following was not used often, if at all). Here there was evidence of recent vehicle activity. The rocky summit is just behind some communication towers, and was quite slick in the snow and ice. I don't think the hike took me much longer than an hour and twenty minutes, round trip.
