DescriptionIf The Liberator were on Challenge Buttress, it would be the most climbed 10a in BCC. It pieces together a cool set of features, all on superb rock. Climb past six bolts to chains. The Ruckmans’ 1998 guide says of the route, “devious.” Probably best for the experienced 5.10 leader; the bolts are 27 years old and have SMC hangers.
LocationThis is on the west face of Liberator Ridge, which is the ridge just east of Lower Education Ridge (see beta photo). As you thrash up the left side of Liberator Ridge, you’ll get to a section of really good rock. Just ahead is a sole cedar tree. Drop your packs here and spot the first bolt maybe 10 feet off the ground.
