Ascent Trip Report

The road to the summit is named for war hero Robert F. Sink, and there's a museum in Toccoa commemorating the paratroopers he trained on this mountain.

The summit is about a 20-foot climb from the end of the road. There's a RM pointing to a hidden BM under one of the towers.

Views from the summit are limited because of trees.

My GPS showed the top contour at 1680 rather than 1740.
