Beautiful route. All these routes were well thought out when bolted. A place where you can focus on the climbing moves instead of potentially bad falls. Props! Jan 31, 2011

Good and long, Surfing Quartzite is a very worthy 11+, one of my Isolation favorites. As noted by Mark, the start is definitely a hard onsight, but once you suss the moves it eases up. Once the inital crux is over though there is still plenty of quality climbing, so you will not fall asleep. The rock is nice and clean and the line is aesthetic, ascending a tree-topped, exposed feeling buttress. Feb 20, 2011
