Description

The New Millennium Wall is a relatively short, moderately steep wall with a height of about 30 feet. It is West facing with a nice clearing in the trees, allowing for good direct sunlight in the afternoons. The rock is diorite like the rest of Mount Erie, and it is well consolidated. Most routes here require a combination of bolts and traditional gear for protection. Most routes have bolted anchors at the top. There is a nice fallen tree at the base, which makes for a good belay seat. Due to ease of access there are occasionally multiple top ropes hanging on the wall. The wall has mostly face climbing in the 5.6 to 5.9 range.

Getting There

To get to the new millennium wall, park in the pullout on the east side of Hart Lake Road,1/8 mile north of the Lake Erie Grocery. From the pullout, follow the access road behind the gate uphill to the north. Follow this road about 4-5 minutes through a wide spot until a trail leaves on the right hand side heading up towards the cliffs. Follow this trail uphill for a few minutes longer, until it T’s into trail 247. The New Millennium Wall is directly across the intersecting trail (247). Approach the cliff on its right hand side.
Total approach time is about 10 minutes.

Alternatively (and probably less private property involved), take Trail 248 from same spot 1/8 mi north of store (has a kiosk with maps), follow steeply uphill for 5-10 minutes to first major intersection (Trail 247), then head left for another 5-10 minutes until you see the wall (small wooden sign with faded wall name is in a tree at right end of wall). There is a switchback to your left when the trail reaches the wall.
