Ascent Trip Report

I took Pa. 210 off 422 in Elderton Pa. to SR 2004 (a couple of miles, I didn't clock it on my odometer), and then south on Barks Hill Rd. After winding around uphill, I turned near a mobile home on a gas well access track, and parked about a quarter mile from the hp coordinates. The steep hill looms across a field. I followed my GPD heading across the field and then up the surprisingly steep slope. On the return I veered slightly north of the direct heading where the slope is a bit less steep.
