Ascent Trip ReportStarted off on the end of Glidden Road, started up the white blazed trail towards Rand Mt. Once I summited, I headed off towards Klem Mt., still fallowing the white blazed trail. At the summit of klem, the trail splits, I fallowed the red blazes to Mack and continued on to Anna Mt, at which point the blazes turn blue and lead to Straightback South. After reaching the summit of Straightback south, I back tracked about .1 miles to where the trail split off of the blue blazes and turns white. This lead to Straightback Mt., then onto West Quarry. Be warned; right after Straightback Mt., there's logging and the trail is pretty much gone. So I just bushwhacked to the summit of West Quarry.
