  1. Wild Dreams at Erie

    As far as I know the first clean ascent was done in July of 2014 by Chris Weidner. He led the climb on the rusty bolts but added new anchor and belay bolts the next day. Not sure if it's been sent since then.

    Looks like great weather THIS Saturday for the annual Dallas Kloke Memorial Mt. Erie Trail Work Party. 9am-noon with climbing in the afternoon. Meet at the base of the summit road at 9:00
  3. Digital guide for Mt. Erie

    Mt. Erie guidebook authors Jim Thompson and Aaron Bryant have teamed up with the folks at rakkup.com to produce a mobile version of the guidebook. This new digital guide not only features the full complement of routes of the printed guide, but the ability to sort the climbs in a number of ways to customize your climbing day. Additionally, the free rakkup mobile app provides real-time turn-by-turn navigation to all of the climbs.
