Quoted per Dallas Kloke's comprehensive guide titled Rockin' on the Rock: A climbers guide to Mount Erie "This is a good lead for beginners. Climb up easy rock, then through a vertical notch. Continue up fractured rock and a final V-book."

3 out of 5 stars Sorry for the late report

Joe Lewis and I free soloed this route after having climbed it several times with a TR. We would have rated it 5 stars, but we were young and foolish then.

2 out of 5 stars Kinda lame

A big rock in the middle of the book toward the end of the climb is loose and could easy kill your belayer if it came down while you were climbing. However, it does have nice new bolts at the top. Be sure to use a long sling for the master point.
