Description

From the chains at the top of the first pitch on Zig Zag, climb the slab directly up past 2 bolts until underneath the overhang. The overhang can also be reached by climbing discontinuous cracks and ramps on the slab which head up and right from the start. Climb rightward underneath the overhang until rejoining the upper pitch of Zig Zag. Gear is available the whole way, and there are several fun moves. The route ends on the same ledge as Zig Zag, with a bolted anchor. Rope drag can be an issue on this pitch, bring along some extendable runners.

Location

Climb the first pitch of Zig Zag to reach the start. One can also scramble around to the left of the first pitch of Zig Zag to attain some grassy benches, but this may require some low 5th class moves.

Protection

Gear to 2"

Photos

If climbing straight up from the belay past two bolts, there is a thin 5.8 or 5.9 move, but once in the crack, it's 5.7 to the next belay.

The best Mt. Erie Multipitch is Zig Zag p1, Undercover for p2, and Springboard or Eagle's wings for p3 Aug 17, 2009
