With a 70m, you can climb Concord in one pitch!

Crack on the Center of the South Face of Concord. Looking from the notch, start up the obvious crack in the middle of the wall. Climb through a bulge and continue up while trending left. Two right facing corners will put you at the tree right below the summit block. Finish to the top.

Note, there are some loose blocks and flakes. Take usual alpine climbing caution. Rock has some lichen, could definitely use the traffic it deserves


Start behind the trees at the notch. To descend, two single rope raps from the south side of the summit will bring you down.


Tips to #3. Bring about a 1.5 rack and add more depending on confidence. Lots of Alpine draws as this route wanders. Belay from Summit bolted anchor.

Never saw any 5.8 cracks when I rappeled the south face!? Sure this isn't on the north face, near Liberty Bell? If so, description sounds like the Patriot Cracks route...
