GREENFIELD — Grunting and scurrying up a 45-degree cliff face, a group of eight men heaved and pushed a wooden platform back up on top of Sachem’s Head on Sunday.

‘OK. One, two, three — lift!’ said Will Savitri as he maneuvered a come-along, which helped winch the platform up the slope and kept it from slipping back onto the crew below. ‘One more time! One, two, three — lift! We’re close. We’re close to where we want to be.’

Once the platform got on the top of the cliff, it needed to be rotated about 90 degrees to fit on the footings.
