Runout and bold climbing, this is a baptism for climbing at Quartz. Crux is turning the bulge in the 2nd pitch.


Climb the waterstreak and crack right of S-Wall.


Stoppers, and cams to up to #4. No anchor. #3 and #4 cam for mid anchor.

FA: Duane Raleigh and Terry Andrews - Tony has had it wrong in his guidebook. This is the only FA that Duane and I ever did together. Jun 10, 2010
Not sure how that happened, sorry Terry. Jan 10, 2012
This is actually a great route. You can either start at the base and do the runout water streak to the crack, or traverse in from the right. The water streak is 5.8-5.9 or so, but zero pro.

Right where the crack splits and dies out on the second pitch, you can put in two solid nuts, or small cams. The crux is the stepping up with the pro at your feet and then a reach left, where you have to lean left and then match hands. From there it is a romp to the top.

I liked this route and did it all of the time. So it can't be that bad, right? Jan 17, 2016
