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


Starts from the far left end of Black Lichen Slab. Climb some airy moves through the left side of the prominent roof then continue up the right side of the arete. After a short runout a steep hand crack reaches the top of the arete. Continue across the gully and up a couple slabs with a bolt each to the anchor.


Starts from Black Lichen Slab on the right side of the Central Skyline Arete wall. Rappelling the route requires a double rope rappel, or rap from the anchors on Convulsions.


Pro to 2", 2 bolts, chain anchors.

Cool climb, if quite adventurous for Erie. Loose rock, amazing rock, lichen, awesome position, hard to find, awkward descent, all part of the deal.

The access from below requires some class 3/4 scrambling that may not be novice or canine friendly
