Ascent Trip Report

I found no easy accessibilty, but received permission at the Rte 81 Quarry to follow their roads up to the woods beyond to find a crisscross of wood roads some with ATV tracks in the fresh snow along the ridge, while mostly finding private property and posted lands along High Hill Rd and never finding / exploring the Bill Mater Rd to where many of the wood roads seem to make for, I met deer in the quarry even before entering the woods and followed their herd path slabbing up the steep eastern slope with nice views east reaching ridge and wood roads going right along the ridge to summit with its "King" Benchmark.
