Description:

One of the first routes done at Quartz and very classic. Not a great beginner route as gear can be tricky in spots (especially the first 15 feet). Obvious vertical crack system to the right of the large overhang in the middle of the face. Gear is tricky at the start and in the middle of the first pitch. Two pitches - First Pitch is about 100 feet. Begins with a flaring seam (either start at the bottom in a pit or start about 10 feet up using ledge system) that becomes a flaring polished crack as you climb higher. Belay at the base of a steep right facing dihedral. Second pitch heads straight up the dihedral for about 60 feet. U F.A. Hollingsworth, Lowell (1973)

5 out of 5 stars sweet climb

Finally got to climb this one, ahd some great friends along. Great lead scooby. The second pitch start gave me a little bit of resistance but gave in under my superior climbing ability....lol not really. Great route , and the top out view was amazing.

Fun Route. Very glad I got a chance to get back down here to climb it again. Nothing Like a great day on a wall that can give you some multi pitch climbing!

4 out of 5 stars 2nd time it seemd harder to protect the first pitch.

2nd pitch is still super fun to accomplish.
