Lower Maine Wall/East Buttress Trails Closed MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is a very fun climb up a steep face with a broken crack system. The climb has a great combination of balance, crimping, crack technique, and technical footwork. The crux seems to be at the third bolt where a short overhanging block must be overcome. The climbing is sustained and a bit pumpy. A combination of bolts and gear provide protection. Fortunately, the bolts protect the hardest moves.


Location 

This is the first bolted climb on the face to the right of the first pitch on Zig Zag. Belay directly from the trail.


Protection 

4 bolts and gear to 2"
bolted anchor at the top

Probably one of the top 3 best pitches at Mt. Erie

Aug 2011, the ASCA replaced the first three bolts on this route with 1/2x2.75" SS. The fourth is in decent shape. The third was actually broken in the hole, and was held in by two threads...
