Quartzite Crag Rock Climbing
Qaurtzite Crag represents the continuation of Cartoon Crag and Supremacy Rock but on the North side of the creek. This broken and rarely traveled crag stretches above the creek and up the hill before intersecting the West Ridge around the Inverted Vee area. This crag faces west and as such will see morning shade and afternoon sun.
Approach as for the West Ridge, but instead of heading uphill on the West Ridge climber's trail, continue west along the creek until reaching the crag.
