Description

This route just climbs to the high point of Quartz Hill Shoulder.

Quartz Hill proper looks pretty intimidating and maybe require a short rope/crampons and an ice axe to summit.

However, I have never done it, so take my assessment with a grain of salt...

Be careful when descending this one because if you choose to ski the NE face, this a huge cliff in the center that comes out of no where from gentle low angle terrain.

It might safer to ski back along the high point of the ridge...
