Route Climbed: North Face, Variation Date Climbed: July 17, 2004
While waiting for the slow parties on Liberty Bell we headed up Concord tower. I found the first pitch variation (5.10 lieback?) to be about 5.7 and very enjoyable. Unfortunately on the second pitch we didn't go far enough left and ended up doing a variation of the second pitch that was in a flared crack with minimal protection. It eventually joined up with the final pitch of the regular route.
When Rappelling make SURE you go WAY left to the solid rappel slings along the proper climbing route. We went back the way we came and rappelled off a very tiny bush that had been rappelled from before (two slings on it). Not a bomber anchor.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
