Southern Sixers

Southern Sixers‘ is the name commonly used to refer to the large 6,000+ foot mountains in the Southeast Appalachian Mountains.

Disclaimer: Climb AT YOUR OWN RISK! Many of these will be difficult, strenuous, with dangerous descents. Do your own research and make sure you are prepared for the terrain. You are responsible for yourself!
