Worth a run if in the area; if it weren’t for a 10-foot-long patch of vegetation in the dihedral, this would be three stars. War Paint is the dihedral/crack system just left of The Liberator. Face climb into the dihedral and follow the crack to the chains shared with The Liberator. According to the Ruckmans (1998): “Some slippery stems provide entertainment.”


See The Liberator.


A set of cams from ¾ to 2 inches; consider taking a few extra finger-size and thin-hands-size.
