Ascent Trip Report

I approached Quartz from Ash Valley Raod off of South Umpqua River Road. After tagging Quartz I drove out to Hwy 138. This is a long drive on good logging roads. The road up to the top of Quartz Mtn is steep with lots of switchbacks. The summit has been heavily quarried and it probably is not a high as it was once. The summit has been leveled and is a couple acres is size. The summit may have been lowered by 50 ft or more. There are great views from the summit.
