Near Tors: Lizard's Eye Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: West side of the Lizard's Eye. The Fin and the Eas...
Lizard's Eye is probably the most popular crag at the Tors, with about a dozen routes up to 60 feet in length. The rock is generally gritty and lichen-covered due to lack of traffic, but the more popular routes have cleaned up well enough. Some of the classics include The Fin (5.11), Easy Reach (5.7) and Park's Highway (5.9).
Hike along the Tors Trail approximately 2 hours until you get to the first granite outcrop (Rock 1). Just 100 yards beyond Rock 1 is a prominent 60' high north-south trending wall - this is the Lizard's Eye.

When the arete becomes too rounded to continue, make a big move up right (crux) to a small crystalline crimp that resembles a set of teeth. Above, continue liebacking using whatever small crystals for feet you can find. Very nice! ...[more] Browse More Classics in Alaska
