Dang! That was a confusing highpoint. Maybe part of the problem was that it was the 5th in our attempt to cram 6 in a 24-hour period. Then again, if you're following Holmes' directions from the Elk Garden approach, you come to a stile that makes you think you've already passed the spur trail to the summit. We met a couple who had given up on the summit, having proceeded farther down the trail (around Rogers and losing elevation). They couldn't find the spur ahead, either, and decided to camp for the night and head home in the morning. The spur is, of course, there--just not near the first stile, and after a significant elevation drop and gain, around the other side of Rogers.
Anyway, since I was the first at the summit, I did some bushwacking around trying to find the sign I understood to be there. I'm sure (I hope) I stepped on that "other" marker. Ok, I've admitted to another highpointer symptom there.
