Mostly Unknown

Long/Lat: 146.360375, -37.882547

Unique Features And Strengths:

Mt Erica Rocks provides a vast number of high quality granite boulders with very high frictional properties The boulders are situated amongst scenic alpine forest.

Description:

Most of the routes are bolted, so you could get away with a sport climbers rack, though there are a few trad cracks to climb. Mostly the routes are not that tall and most are quite hard to get up.

Access Issues:

To gain access from Melbourne drive to Moe in the north-east of the state via the Princess Hwy, and take the road to the locality of Erica. About 10kms afterwards, turn left to the signposted Mt Erica, and drive on up. Take the walking track from the car park for about 30 minutes to the boulder field.
