Description

Mount Erie is one of the most amazing climbing spots in the Pacific Northwest**.** If you want to try some of the climbing routes to its summit, this day outing is for you!

Situated in Fidalgo Island, Mount Erie rises 388 meters above Puget Sound and it is the highest point of the island. It is located within the Anacortes Community Forest Lands and its park is operated by the city of Anacortes.

First explored in the 1960s, Mount Erie offers an endless variety of routes for all abilities. Most of them are moderate and easy climbs for beginners, but there are also challenging multi-pitch routes for advanced climbers. Three of the most popular lines are Powerline Wall, The Snag Buttress and Summit Wall.

In this tour, we will select the best route depending on your climbing skills and your wishes.

Mount Erie is composed mostly of feldspar and hornblende rich diorite, perfect for climbing. Furthermore, it lies in the rain shadow of the Olympics, so it stays dry and warm during the most part of the year. From its summit we will enjoy a panoramic view: island-dotted waters, mounts Baker and Rainier, and the Olympic Peninsula.

So, if you want to climb to the highest point of Fidalgo Island, please contact me! Let me guide you to the summit of the beautiful Mount Erie!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

Nate was very knowledgeable and got me to the top of mountain. He’s not as engaging as most of the guides I’ve had over the years. I’ve learned a lot about most of my climbs as guides talk about the mountain and the area maybe even plant and animals and I enjoy getting to know them better. We did talk a bit more on the way out of the trailhead. All in all a good experience. But not sure your company told him I had a knee replacement and would be slow.
