Mt Erie and Fidalgo Island Bouldering Rock Climbing
Mt Erie from the air.
Mt Erie and the surrounding city forest land is hiding a surprising amount of good bouldering on free standing rocks and small cliff bands. There are also other hidden areas scattered around Fidalgo Island waiting to be cleaned.
There have been just a few spots developed so far. Dallas Kloke has published several guides to area bouldering but they are out of print. If you know of any bouldering on Fidalgo Island or any history concerning bouldering in the Anacortes area please feel free to add it here.
These areas are sort of adventure bouldering as of right now. Dirty toputs, moss, blackberry bushes and steep hillsides are the norm. On the bright side, Anacortes enjoys better than average weather for the area, especially in the spring and fall.
I want it to be clear that the names and grades I give are just placeholders until more information surfaces. Also the grades are what I feel is accurate but are also subject to change.
