Looking down from the top of the third pitch


An enjoyable variation to the third pitch of the NW Face of Liberty Bell. Rather than moving to the right up the flakes, take the more direct route up a clean looking crack to the left of the flakes, directly above the belay ledge. Begin by moving up the well protected, good quality crack, trending slightly to the left (5.7). After 40 or so feet of climbing the crack will funnel into something more vertical and uniform. At this point you will be able to place one final, very solid piece of 1-2" gear in the vertical crack. The crack then turns into a 5.10 flared groove in the rock. You will move up past two solid bolts and some tricky slab to the belay ledge.

Two bolts where it counts
