Climb the seam left of the bolts.


Four bolts to a two bolt anchor. The protection and the anchor are shared with "Lady Liberty".

Much better line than those to the left. Fun. Decent rests. Too bad it didn't continue a few hundred feet more.

I think it is absolutely hilarious that this and Lady Liberty, are considered different routes!? How incredibly contrived. What is the world coming to? Very depressing.

I agree, there shouldn't be two routes listed here.

In the sense that this route & Lady Liberty use the same bolts, you could have given the bolt route one name with two distinctly different grades. Lady Liberty feels two to three letter grades harder. They are distinctly different lines that share the same start past 1st bolt & possibly the finish. I can understand why Alan gave them two names. Then again I used to climb with him.

The more reasonable finish is shown in the photo using both seams. Stay in the left seam finishing left of the anchor on poor holds & the .11a rating makes sense.
