The South Beyond 6,000 (SB6K) Challenge, organized by the Carolina Mountain Club, encourages hikers to scale the forty 6,000 foot peaks in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Those who complete the SB6K Challenge earn a patch as well as the satisfaction of having hiked the tallest mountains in the Southeast. Over the next few years, Venture Outdoor Leadership will travel to each of the peaks that our Commercial Use Permit allows us to access.
Because of the elevation and the remote location of these mountains, participants should know these hikes are inherently strenuous physically, often present extreme weather and other hazards, and typically take 8 or more hours to complete. Beginners are welcome, just expect a challenging and rewarding day.
Participants must provide their own high-top backpacking boots with ankle support.
