Not as bad as advertised

All I heard about BMS was that it smelled horrible. It’s actually not that bad. Views at the top of the mountain were OK better views coming off the mountain on the north side. Must see.

Hike there but don't stay

It is not advised to p at the top of blood mountain. It's an amazing hike to the top but once there it can get very windy at night and the shelter has nice and other critters. There are a few good primitive spots down the other side of the mountain if you are hiking the AT.
