Comments: I updated the directions. If anyone wants me to add anything else I would be more than happy. I only made one visit to this cliff and am probably not the best person to update this page.


Location: NY : Little Falls : Moss Island : Fred P. Jones (5.10+)

Comments: Probably the best route on Moss Island. The bolts are in good shape and do not need backed up anymore.

Comments: Maybe I don't have your balancing skills Jay but I found this route to be very sustained and harder than the 5.9s to the left.

Even so I still liked the route a lot and is a much better pitch than the looks of the one to the right.

Comments: Such an awesome route! A must do at the grade on Crane! With a beautiful top out to make it even sweeter!

Comments: Are you sure you are thinking of the correct climb? There is a forth class ramp system to the right of this but this climb is the corner system just to the right of sno white. It for sure has some 5th class moves and if at any other climbing area would not be 5.1.

Comments: My guide book does not list the name just grade. If you have more info PM me and I will update the route.


I found this route to be awkward and harder than 10a. Although I have found that most of Mount Erie feels a bit stiff.

Comments: This is no longer the left most route. Someone added an additional route just to the left of this one.

Comments: It is "R" rated because you literally climb 200 feet without a bolt over super chossy although easy terrain. Every move harder than 5.7 is well protected.

Comments: We had no trouble finding the route. We made it to the base in 45 min. The trail is pretty beat in. If it wasn't for those 5.0 pitches half way up this would be such a great route. The chossiness of those pitches really bring it down. Took us 14 hours car to car.

Comments: Don't get sandbagged by the approach! We were not moving super fast but even so it took us almost 2 hours! We did the first 6 pitches. Lots of great slightly runout slab climbing on chicken heads. More of a head game than actually hard climbing. For what we did of it was super sweet!

Comments: For some reason someone left a piece of webbing hanging from the chains with a very rusted quick link hanging from it. The webbing is badly aged and needs to be cut off. If I had a knife I would have.

Comments: Cool climbing area if you are bored after work. Base area could use some trail work. Its a bit scary in spots.

Comments: Fun first moves to a walk up a 5.3 slab. Not really worth the horrible approach.

Comments: Would be a really cool route if it was cleaner. As is it is kinda scary slipping on lichen.
