Summary

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 carrot 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.

Approach

Most of the climbs are located around the Mushroom Rocks area. About 30 minutes walk or 1.7km from the carpark there is a small campsite on the left, marked with a "Fuel Stove Area - Campfires Not Permitted" sign. Poet Rock is 15m up the path, on the right.
