Quartzsite's Strike

5.11a, Sport, Alpine, 60 ft (18 m),  Avg: 3.8 from 4 votes
FA: Daniel Lenel, Nick Weicht
Alaska > Anchorage & S C… > Valdez Area Rock > Lookout Rock!!


Currently the best route at the Crag and one of the finest in the area of the grade. Climb the Arete past multiple veins of bright quartzite. Pull onto a precarious block and onto a steep and enjoyable crux section. Large holds after the ledge will bring you to the anchor


This route is located 40 feet down Hill from the upper right end of the cliff.


7 bolts, 2 bolt chain anchor.
