Ascent of Quartzite Peak on 2021-03-21
|Date:||Sunday, March 21, 2021|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5121 ft / 1560 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI parked near Copper Hill Tank and went up the slopes toward Peak 4916, but I traversed so as to reach the saddle, then up to the top. Easy but steep, lots of grass and rock, but not difficult. I came down a slope parallel to my ascent slope, this one aiming more toward the tank. Took 60 minutes up, 45 down.
Road in (Copper Cyn Road) is good, most vehicles should be able to handle it. Gets a little rocky in spots but nothing too bad except for the tiniest vehicles.
Pretty area, enjoyable climb.
