Lizard's Eye is probably the most popular crag at the Tors, with about a dozen routes up to 60 feet in length. The rock is generally gritty and lichen-covered due to lack of traffic, but the more popular routes have cleaned up well enough. Some of the classics include The Fin (5.11), Easy Reach (5.7) and Park's Highway (5.9).
Hike along the Tors Trail approximately 2 hours until you get to the first granite outcrop (Rock 1). Just 100 yards beyond Rock 1 is a prominent 60' high north-south trending wall - this is the Lizard's Eye.

Pull up and over a bulge using a nice finger-to-hand crack and some stemming, then hand traverse right again. Pull over a second bulge using a flake/finger crack and some peripheral holds, then step right into the OW for a few feet before pulling over the top. ...[more] Browse More Classics in AK
