Description 

Start at the left base of the rock for the original and easiest line. Move up and right passing a horizontal crack to a high step onto the face with bolt protection. Staying left keeps the route at the original grade of 5.10a, but directly up the bolts is slightly more difficult.

Also very easy to set up a toprope for early season training. Fun!


Location 

Erocktica is on a very large boulder about a hundred yards uphill from the restrooms. From the parking lot entrance go past the Restrooms to the very end of the lot and follow a draw uphill for the easiest approach.


Protection 

There are 3 bolts on this route. Only need quickdraws.

An alternative start is from the lower right hand edge of the boulder; this is much more difficult and has been called 5.11a by many. Shorter climbers will find ths extremely hard.
