Description

This was the start of a route in which Matt Robertson and a friend climbed to the top of the Grand Auditorium. If following that epic climb, be sure to bring ice climbing gear for the "bad" sections.

Instead of going up the loose grassy slope to Freedom Crack, continue around the bottom of the ledge to the crack in the corner. Ascend this crack, being aware of loose rock, to a ledge without an anchor. Makes for a great alternative approach to FC.

If continuing on this route, belay on gear, and bring up your partner. From here, you will have to traverse along the wall and descend a few feet to the start of the route. With the grass and minimal protection, this can be a little hairy.
