May become popular if other offerings are deemed available in this area. Very short approach in a quiet and pleasant area of Summit County. Well-protected.
Pitch #1: After finding the Quill, climb the steepest and longest aspect following bolts through 3 distinct overhangs to a two-bolt belay. 5.10a, 25m.
This is easily reached on the approach to Porcupine Rock. It appears as a diminutive tower in front of the main walls of Porcupine Rock. The trail mentioned for the Porcupine Rock area leads directly by The Quill.
QDs for 10 bolts to a two-bolt belay. 3/8" and 1/2" x 3" Hilti bolts installed.
Another view of the Quill from the Montezuma Road.
