Description

Although junky looking from afar, this pleasant and exposed scramble yields a surprising amount of fun and solid climbing on juggy quartzite. Make your way to the base of Quartzite Crag, and jump on the ridge. Continue up, staying near the ridge crest for the most solid rock and fun climbing. While the majority of this route is easy 5th to 3rd class, several short vertical to overhanging bulges and corners will keep you on your toes.

Location

Start at the base of Quartzite Crag, and climb until the rock runs out. Continue uphill until you hit the West Ridge trail and take it down.

Protection

Protection is possible, but all of the harder climbing is directly above large ledges so this most likely makes a better solo.

This one is actually more fun than the ridge on the other side of the canyon. Route finding is key to keeping it 3rd Class. Aug 20, 2018
