Description

Mt. Simon is a hard sandstone rock that juts up about 30' on the upper part of Mt. Simon Park in the city of Eau Claire. Beautiful views from the top, the west side has a easy hike to the top of the rock, while the east face is the climbing side. Feel free to drop any opinions on ratings as my experience to ratings is minimal, but wanted to put Eau Claire on the climbing map with the location. Enjoy the view!

Getting There

There is a small parking lot and some street parking on the south side of the area that leads to the rock. Hike is only about 100 yards.

I learned how to first climb here in the 70's. We used to climb the hell out of this thing over and over and over... we spent a lot of time up there. Ha> I went up there recently and was sad to see the amount of garbage and glass. Ha! The routes look like they have eroded even more then back in the 70's but no surprise... the rock is pretty soft in places... I think I carved my initials up on top at least a dozen times over the years.... I guess I am not real proud of that now that I am much older... We used to have beer parties up on top all the time but glad to say the crew I went around with always picked up after ourselves... May 17, 2018
Anyone know how old the bolts at the top are and if they're in good rock? Oct 31, 2018 · Temporary Report
