quartz course... good fun

Description 

A nice little warm up at the far right end of the cliff. A little traffic might do it some good as the rock is brittle and needs to wear down to the good stuff.

Climb the right side of the large quartz deposit that makes up Tourmaline Dreams 5.9. Big holds on steepish interesting rock lead to the nice beefy anchors (these anchors ar poorly placed however, as the rope runs right in to a tight crack).

Location 

The last line on the right.

Protection 

3 bolts to anchors.
