A neat place that's relatively easy to get to in the Linville Gorge Wilderness is a pair of mountain peaks called "The Chimneys". Viewed from a distance they appear to be easy to climb, but when you get to the base of the twin peaks, you learn that it's not actually as easy as it looks.
The first time I went I wasn't able to climb all the way to the summit of the higher of the pair of peaks. But I hope to return there soon and get to the top.
Here I was at the base of one of the peaks. You have to climb the rock walls to get to the top. Next time, for sure.
I did manage to climb most of the way to the top, stopping about twenty vertical feet shy of the summit. There I turned and got this photo of Andy and Boone sitting at the bottom.
