Ascent Trip Report

Parked along quarry road and walked the rest of the way. Passed the large piles of quarry stone remnants looking for a high point when I realized the piles were the high point. Climbed the closest one and decided it was not the right one. Found a decent trail for the proper one (after some scrambling) and went up that way. Did not see a benchmark.
