Getting There 

Park at the base of Erie near the store. There is a white gate blocking an old road at the trailhead for trail 48. this is the traditional way to most of the lower climbing on Erie. A short way up the trail that follows the fence on the right and you will see a faint trail on the left. Follow it up and under the power lines and you will see the boulder in the trees beyond the clearing.


Possibly the best boulder this side of Gold Bar. there are several easy problems and at least two VERY hard lines to be had. The original guide book left the hardest face out completely.

Giant Slayer V7 7A+  Washington : Northwest Region : ... : The Goliath Boulder
Start under the bulge on the far right of the overhanging face of the Goliath Boulder. A couple of moves up and then follow the sparse spaced holds up and left along the lip to the top. The grade is speculative. The guidebook "Just Crank It" rates this E4(a contrived local grading system)E4 = V0.......yea RIGHT. This thing is hard. V7 is more likely....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
