I'm thinking sodium plagioclase feldspar more than quartz and the pinker ones are potasium orthoclase feldspar...i.e. "pegmatite". There probably is quartz in there, but I'm thinking it's not the majority component...could be wrong as I've certainly never been on that pitch, but I've looked at it from afar many times.

I would like to hear the geologic explanation to that angle in the lighter colored rock. It's wild! Anyone? Sep 17, 2011
