Ascent Trip Report

A short, steep climb to a narrow ridge of awesome views out to the Greens with the Hudson River stretching away below.

This time, I followed overgrown path rising up from quarry bottom and climbed turning back from a short, steep rock step, back to another path / wac slabbing around to the knob's south side and its main trail up clear to summit.
