Ascent Trip Report

This was a side trip on my return from adjacent Coldbranch Mtn. From the saddle SW of Coldbranch (3080+) follow a 4x4 track SW up the ridge to the first summit (3309, according to altimeter that I had calibrated 25 minutes earlier on Coldbranch). Red blazes W of the summit mark the boundary of the Greenville Watershed, which is closed to hiking. I encountered laurel thickets and did not continue to the second 3280 contour.

Battered Rock is on my proposed SC1K list (SC peaks above 1 kilometer, or 3280 feet).
