Ascent Trip ReportA drive up on West Road.
We were driving by this Hill after visiting Chemung CoHP so we decided to pay a visit. Driving south on CR45 (College Avenue) we turned right (west) on West Road (Quackenbush Hill Baptist Church on the corner) and drove 200+ yards to the crest-of-the-road, parked the van.
On the left (south) 15 feet inside the woods are 2 Witness Posts Survey Markers beside the BM imbedded in concrete "US Coast & Geodetic Survey, WIHN, 1959", my GPS read 42.18814, 76.98122.
I walked the woods on both sides of the road and high ground could be to the right (north) of the road in the Telephone Line swath, my spot was at 15 yards from the road, GPS 42.18835, 76.98125.
"IF EVERYONE THINKS ALIKE ..... SOMEONE IS NOT THINKING."
