Ascent Trip Report

My experience was similar to Andy Hatzsos' report, although I took a variant driving route: OH 506, left on Slate Hill Rd., left on Butters Rd., left on unsigned Carmel Rd., right in about 1/3 mi. on unsigned Millerstown Rd. and then right into the long dirt driveway. The house at the end is definitely occupied with dogs, chickens, vehicles, etc. present, but no one was home but the dogs. I left a note on my windshield and headed up as it started to drizzle. The climb is just under a half mile one way with about 320 feet of elevation gain although there are some steeper spots than these figures suggest. The top is a field and the high point is not obvious so I wandered quite a bit
