Ascent Trip Report

An old tote rd south to some nice views at road's end, with a few hundred yards of weaving wack thru overgrown woods to an erratic rock pile summit (reached after resetting my GPS mistake from wandering downslope east); thanks to Ben L. for trailhead info & Dave D. for warnings to avoid striking into difficult terrain for nearby Hoosac, to which Quarry Rd nicely reaches (met local who was finishing his daily walk up, telling me that the quarry's owner frowns on one's driving the road up, so tried my hesitant jog up managing an easier run down) as a walk/run up from "posted" quarry gate to all-around views including just climbed Clark and a picnic area with signpost to surrounding horizons.
