DescriptionCradle of Liberty is a stunning line up an epic swath of orange and white streaked granite. It is one of the best routes in the canyon I have ever seen, complete with some of the most unique hole/pocket features I've ever seen on granite. This is a true 40 meter outing that will test your mental and physical abilities across the board.
Start by climbing Hayden House with two ropes or both ends of a single 70m rope. At the Hayden House anchor, drop one rope and continue onto the Cradle with your remaining 70m or 80m rope clipped into the anchor and first bolt. Traverse right until you can start the first crux moving into and out of the large, undercling flake. Pumpy climbing leads to the middle crux which revolves around a huge move to a slopey gaston followed by another reach or jump to a massive double pocket feature. Airy 5.12 climbing leads up to a rest before the final crux bulge. A tricky gaston sequence leads into two slopey crimps that guard the final jugs and the run to the anchor.
This route is amazing, and I don't think I will ever get tired of climbing on it.
