Mount Erie - Practice Cliff & Powerline Wall, Spring 2004 & 2005



It was finally time to climb some Mt. Eerie rock. My previous visit got rained out and I hoped for better luck this time. After not having climbed much of anything that resembled rock this winter, I found my abilities shockingly lacking.

At Practice Cliff we climbed the following: Jack of Diamonds (5.6), Queen of Diamonds (5.8), King of Diamonds (5.7) and The Open Book (5.6).

We climbed several interesting routes over at Poweline including Tindall's Terror (5.7+) and Tree Shadow (5.7), not to mention various bolted routes that appear newer than most publications dedicated to the area.

I returned to Mount Eerie later that summer with Agata and climbed a newly bolted route next to Tindal's Terror on Powerline Wall ~ 5.8/5.9. Later, we climbed the two (or three) pitch Zig Zag on Snag Buttress (5.7). The short dihedral pitch at the end really gets the blood pumping! I continued up to the top anchors and tr'd what appears to be a newly bolted route following the line of what's considered the Direct Finish variation of Zig Zag (5.9). Slightler taller than a full 30 meters, the Direct Finish is one of the most enjoyable 5.9's I've done to date. Well worth checking out!

Agata and I returned to Mount Eerie in early March '05 to re-aquaint ourselves with outdoor rock climbing (after a long winter of climbing indoors). We proceeded straight to Powerline Wall and TR'd the familiar Tindal's Terror and Psycho. We then worked left (west) and TR'd Intimidator (10a) and Terminator (10a/b).

Mount Erie - Main Wall, April 2005



Putting our modest alpine climbing plans on hold for yet another weekend, thanks to the crummy weather forecast, Eric and I settled on a casual day of cragging at Mt. Eerie. We ended up climbing Zig Zag on Snag Buttress (3 pitches ~ 5.7) and finished the day off top roping some harder routes near the top of the crag, specifically On Eagles Wings (10a) and the very enjoyable Redemption (5.9+).
