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


Lookout Wall is clustered in the Summit Group Walls at Mount Erie. It is located just below and climbers left of Summit wall. In 2004, two sport routes were bolted on the vertical face. There is also a dirty crack that has a couple trad lines that can be climbed as well.

  • Warning: Since this wall is directly under the Lookout Point on the Erie Summit. People have been know to throw objects off the top, sometimes glass. Good practice to wear a helmet even when TR'ing and watch out for glass on route and at the base.

Getting There 

From Summit Wall: Take the trail down from the middle of Summit Wall. The trail descends briefly then turns and heads west across a couple ledges to the base of Lookout Wall

Skyline Trail gives access to Lookout Wall coming from the west.

Lightning Waltz 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Washington : Northwest Region : ... : Lookout Wall
Route starts just left of the dirty crack system. Scramble up some low 5.0 class rock to the first bolt. Work up the left side of the arete and pull onto a short friction slab. Staying left of the bolts, move up to the second overhang for the second crux, grabbing the right edge. Gain the face with good holds,(a 5.12a variation goes left here to some old rusted hangers) Continue on good crimps moving to the right of the bolts up to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington
