Stef gets started into Quicksilver in July 2013.


P1: 100 feet, 5.10. Layback up the flake until the crack seams out. From here, utilize both crack systems as both seam out momentarily (crux). Then use the right hand crack system, good hands and fingers, to climb to the top with a two bolt anchor.

P2: 150 feet, 5.9. Climb up a nice crack system to the top, negotiating a little looseness near the top.

The first pitch can be rappelled with a single 60m rope.


This is located in the gully just left of Black Beauty. The climb starts in an obvious flake that leads to a thin crack, with a second crack on its right.


Nuts and cams to hands. Small cams helpful.
