    Actually, SmokyMtnSteve, it's not hard at all to climb up the rocks overlooking the shelter.

    I'd suggest tenting south of this shelter below the summit; the cabin is very dark and can be messy.

    Ha well welcome to shelter camping right rain man? Although I wouldnt want to sleep in one every night like on a thru for example, they do add a kind of "spirit" to the trip and have made several of my trips so memorable. If only there were pads close to shelters it would be the best of both worlds!

    we day hiked up there at the end of June. It was infested - and I don't use the term lightly - with a huge swarm of flies. Deeply disgusting and horrifying, really. I don't know if someone had left food in there, or an animal had died in there, or what, but it was horrifying enough I'm not sure I ever want to sleep in there. Has anyone been since? Same or somehow cleaned out?
