Ascent Trip Report

I made this a bit more difficult than necessary by trying an alternate route that didn't pan out. There's a road headed north off Overly Rd. to a sand quarry with a gated old piece of the road off to the right. I thought it might offer an easier way up onto the ridge, but ended up with mostly the same route as Bob Scwab with an extra 3/4 of a mile.
