184 from Valle Crucis to Banner Elk, then 194 from there to the top of Beech Mt. is always good for a few laughs. Certainly not among the most vicious climbs in the state, but up there for difficulty mixed with scenery. Hickory Nut Gap out of Banner Elk on the way to Newland is a favorite also. Relatively easy, but very enjoyable.
