Rusted Razor is a short, high quality route set in a beautiful mountain setting, far away from any crowds.

The route begins from a wild, rocky gully that drops down from the Quartz Garden plateau, offering grand views of the valley below. The route can be approached from below, scrambling up from a trail that heads north from Ironsides, or from above via a trail that passes the Cube on its way to the Quartz Garden. The approach from above is perhaps easier, as descending the gully was much more fun than ascending. Follow the directions as for the Quartz Garden, but instead of veering north out into the open plateau, head south through the forest and find the gap between the large rock formactions that make up the south side of the Quartz Garden.

Rusted Razor scales the face of the rock island that makes up the right side of the rocky gully.

Five bolts head up the wall, the crux 5.8 moves at the last bolt on the headwall. Although rather short, the rock texture and quality, fun moves and aesthetic position made this a crowd pleaser.


5 bolts to a two bolt anchor.
