Description 

Similar to neighboring Wind Walker, Liberty Bell is an excellent long route on great rock. The bouldery start (tougher than the similar moves on Wind Walker) is the crux.

A tough and awkward overhanging start leads to well-protected easier face climbing through a crack system, past a pine tree, to the top.

Location 

Starts just right of Wind Walker.

Protection 

Medium gear (cams, tricams, nuts). Bolted anchor.

Paul pretty much nailed the description on this one. Just do the moves coming out of the roof, you're not missing anything, there's not a better way to do it, it's just that unpleasant. After that it's world class climbing.
