North Ridge (EEOR)

  • Description

    Escape the crowds and venture out to the far side of EEOR (east end of Rundle). This cliff is full of many classic Rockies style rock routes and the North Ridge is no different. The original grade of 5.7 is from 1972 so, expect the climbing to be slightly harder (roughly 5.8/9 by modern standards). This is a fun route and very worthwhile climb for most climbers!
