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).

Getting There 

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.

A beautiful barndoor layback climb on a pinkish-orange arete. Start up a short thin crack to a nice stance at the bottom of the arete. Paste your feet and crank upwards while fighting the urge to barndoor off. 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
