Lower Main Wall/East Buttress Trails Re-opened MORE INFO >>>

Getting There 

Park at the base of Erie near the store. There is a white gate blocking an old road at the trailhead for trail 48. this is the traditional way to most of the lower climbing on Erie. A short way up the trail that follows the fence on the right and you will see a faint trail on the left. Follow it up and under the power lines and you will see the boulder in the trees beyond the clearing.

Description 

Possibly the best boulder this side of Gold Bar. there are several easy problems and at least two VERY hard lines to be had. The original guide book left the hardest face out completely.

Setting up for the punch.

Donkey Punch V4 6B  WA : Northwest Region : ... : The Goliath Boulder
Start sitting with the same left facing sidepull and scrunched feet as the arete. Work through some hard moves up and right. establish your feet on the two obvious ledges with hands on opposing sidepulls. A long reach or dyno with the right hand gets you to a great topout. Really good moves!...[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
