Volunteer and climb at Mt. Eerie

April 20: 3rd Annual Dallas Kloke Memorial Work and Climb Day at Mt. Erie, WA

 

Dallas Kloke was an avid climber and route developer in the Northwest for over 50 years until his death in a climbing fall on September 25, 2010.  Mt. Erie was a special place to him and to keep it special and to honor his legacy, SRCFC will be holding the 3rd Annual Dallas Kloke Memorial Work and Climb Day at Mount Erie on April 20, 2013.

WORK PROJECTS

The day will begin at 9:00 am with Work Projects organized by Anacortes City Park and Recreation Department.  Meet at the Ray Auld drive at the base of Mt. Erie.  Work Projects should wrap-up about noon.  Bring trail maintenance tools such as flat shovels, buckets, shears, gloves, etc.

MEMORIAL GIVEAWAY

At 12:30 pm, we will gather at the Lower Access Trailhead off Heart Lake Road.  Dallas loved to have gear giveaway for all those who participated the work party days the he organized.  To continue that legacy, SRCFC will be giving a rope to one climber who worked and is present.

The afternoon will be time to climb some of Dallas’s routes or ones that were special to him.  For example in 2011, SRCFC National Director, Calvin Landrus, climbed Zig Zag, the classic line at Mt. Erie as declared by Dallas (see below), in mountain boots and tied-in with a bowline on a coil.

    A little worried about the weather. Looks like definite rain friday night and possible rain Sat. Doubt it will dry out if it rains friday night. Winds around 20mph and temps 48-52, cloudy... Hmmm...
