Lower Main Wall/East Buttress Trails Re-opened MORE INFO >>>


Freedom Fighter combines featured rock and engaging movement for 115 ft of remarkable 5.9 climbing. One of the best I've climbed at Erie.

From the top of Snag Buttress, locate a bolt line beginning in a black water streak. Cross a small gully and surmount a large flake before clipping the bolt and making delicate moves through the water streak. Follow bolts up to a ledge with chains. Look left on this ledge to locate the first bolt of the second pitch. Follow bolts up the slab, making committing moves off underclings and finessing your way though crimps will lead you to an anchor with a perfect ledge and an amazing view. Three raps gets you back to the packs.


13 draws, bolted anchors. Optional set of nuts or small cam.
Pitches can be linked with a 60m rope, but drag will be an issue.

*A small cam <.5 or set of nuts can fill in the slight run-out between bolts 1 and 2*
