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


A decent 5.6, good place for beginners to top rope.


Wander up easier & lower-angled ground beneath the feature & climb the short crack in the left-facing corner, to the left of the overhanging "nose."


Minimal protection on the lower portion beneath the corner. Bolted anchors on top, good for top roping.

One of the most aesthetic routes on Erie for the grade. Unfortunately the 'book' section is getting polished from heavy use
