"One of the last sections of trail for my two days of running in the northern section of Shenandoah. There are two epic spots on this peak. Ancient, fascinating rock formations and a beautiful panorama of the Blue Ridge. " - Compton Peak, runshigleyrun, May 13, 2018
"An absolute brilliant day of trail-running which included two waterfalls and four peaks. The sun was shining spiritually from the clouds as we reached the summit of the gnarly Stony Man. " - Stony Man, runshigleyrun, Apr 28, 2018
"Brilliant day of trail-running with my buddy Weaver. We bagged four peaks and enjoyed two waterfalls. Perfect weather and views as we reach the summit of the cool, desolate Little Stony Man. The views may have been even better than on Stony Man. " - Little Stony Man, runshigleyrun, Apr 28, 2018
"Second mountain of the trail-running day for Weaver and me. Challenging, but not as steep or technical as Mary's Rock. Gorgeous views from the top. Roughly two miles south of Mary's Rock. " - The Pinnacle, runshigleyrun, Apr 22, 2018
"Third mountain of the day as Weaver and I finished a brilliant day with a rather easy climb free of technicality. No significant views, but beautiful spring wildflowers dotted the forest floor. Ran Mary's Rock and The Pinnacle beforehand. " - Pass Mountain, runshigleyrun, Apr 22, 2018
