Started off with the Becky route before continuing onto the other 4 summits. Great route to cruise on.

SnowsloggerBeckey route and too much time on top  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 1990


A very fun climb. Even I (not much of a rock climber) thought the finger traverse pretty easy. Spent too much time on the top on a beautiful day, got caught behind others going down, and had to hike out in the dark. The drive home was by far the hardest part!

A very fun route with relatively easy approach. Lots of drag by the end of the 3rd pitch.

Lots of fun, climbed Overexposure, a two pitch 5.8 route that climbs up to the rap anchors that drop you into the Liberty-Concord gully.

Also climbed the Becky route, lots of fun, but not as classic as I was lead to believe.

Also climbed Spontneity arete on the neighboring La Petit Cheval, a 5-7 pitch 5.7 with lots of harder variations. By far one of the best routes in the area for its grade, much more interesting climbing and pitch after pitch goodness than the Becky route in my opinion, very highly recommended.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 1997


Climbed the Becky Route and Liberty Crack. It's good to do the Becky Route first, so you'll have the descent down at the end of a long day on Liberty Crack. Both climbs were great

SawtoothSeanLeft some skin  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2007


We were the only climbers on the Becky Route on a Wednesday. There were some guys climbing on the next tower south. I thought the first pitch was easy (even for 5.3) once we figured out to go under the rock and not out onto the right ridge. The 2nd pitch seemed to have a few moves above 5.6 (just factor out the "aid slings" hanging there), but even so with a pack is sort of awkward. The 3rd pitch finger traverse wasn't so bad, but the step up at the corner was the crux move in my opinion because it didn't protect right above the move, a fall in that spot would hurt, and the rope drag gets bad here. By the top of the 3rd the drag was nearly holding me back. I could have used some more longer slings also. I would go with 6 48 inch slings, and 6 24 inch slings. The 4th pitch was only the boulder move (5.6 but seemed more 5.4-5.5) which was cake compared to the previous moves. To rappel off in 1 rap, scramble below the top of Pitch 3 amongst some trees and find a large ledge with bomber anchors.

I thought the scramble approach wasn't really as bad as some say, in fact it was straightforward and easy, but then again I'm used to that type of approach stuff in the Sawtooths, Tetons, and Lost Rivers.
