Nice, I was hoping to head out there today but the weather kinda turned and it looked a bit damp. Vantage was nice and sunny Saturday.

BTW The last time I was at Mt. Erie I tried to locate the powerline wall and somehow missed it. Do you have the Lon-Lat or an easy way to find it?

No easy way to find most cliffs at Erie. A lon-lat would be sweet. I love that place even though it can be a maze!

i dont have the quads right now should be out there some time next week so i can get them...the easiest way is to go to the top park walk down the road about 300' or so...there is a small parking area here about 3 cars can fit (you can also park here) follow the trails south and west down the mountain...you going to go under some powerlines along the way...you are close keep going west along the top of the cliff band and you should see some gullies down, they can be pretty steep but short...i know this is not the best description ill look at the gps and see if i can find something better...pick yourself up the print out book at the mt erie store its about 5 bucks and can be useful

A bit of thread drift, I know, but the rangers have asked climbers to stay out of the area around Skyline Buttress for the next month or so until they determine where the Peregrines are going to nest this year.

Little bit more thread drift but the slings on top of snag buttress could be replaced before they are to tight around the tree, dont want to hurt the good rap tree. Next time I am up there ill replace them but if anyone is up there before me it would be nice to see them replaced/loosened.

On a side note felt warm up there today in a t shirt. Main wall west was nice and dry.

Wow. Thanks all for the coordinates and the nice google map.
BTW I switched the lon-lat to deg and minutes:
48-27.2178' by 122-37.7556'
