      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Mt. Erie

Recommended Posts

Climbed at Mt. Erie today. It was awesome, it felt like spring or fall, the weather and the views were amazing. We climbed Zig Zag route on Snag Buttress. We then went over to the Shady Hollow area and climbed the Allen Henshaw Pre-Memorial Route and the sport climb Finger Licken Good just to the right. We then drove up to the summit and went to the summit wall and climbed some random crack. Good times, it was nice to practice my trad skills. bigdrink.gif

Great couple days for it! I was at Index Friday and skiing up at Baker yesterday. Pm me next time you go to Erie AA. I live a short ferry ride away and I am trying to get more time on those walls. There are some interesting cracks around the corner, lookers right, from Zig Zag. I did one but wasn't sure it was the one in the old guide book, unless it was totally sandbagged. Found a really old LA but opted not to clip it.

We were at Power Line Wall all day. Could here the Mounties doing rescue practice on some other crag. Great views and a great place to get my head back into climbing.

Ahhhh, I knew you looked a bit familiar. Must have seen your mug shot here on cc.com. You were the dude with curly hair, yelling and having fun, with a chica in blue? Right on, it was an awesome day to be out there. wave.gif

Yes that was me. I missed the eagles 'cause I was leading when they flew by. I had to call bullshit on that party that wanted to rap the route that I was leading.

Eagles, vultures (really comforting on a sketchy route), hawks, they're all there all the time. I think it was more infrequent NOT to see a raptor on a trip to Erie, especially if you go to the Main Wall, Skyline Arete or Powerline areas.
