      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!

[TR] Mt. Erie - Powerline wall 1/23/2011

Trip: Mt. Erie - Powerline wall

Trip Report:

Got out to Mt. Erie yesterday was a little damp and mossy, normally want a full day to dry things out but had to get out climbing. It was 50 and but felt warm and climbing was no problem. Just thought i would give an update.

 

Approach Notes:

Drive to top walk down

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?

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'
