With many different SACer's on many different trips, also with Leslie and Kelsi (need to get my son up there too). Fun, easy climb; nice to do mid-week when you have the summits alone. Great rappel anchors now for descent; easily done with a single rope.

My second time, worth doing more than once. Popular and crowded.

Started off as a nice climb/hike up the trail gully to the notch between Liberty Bell and Concord till a NOISY party of 3 RAN up the trail to get in front of us and another party of 2 we were walking with. They were the slowest party of 3 I have ever seen. With two parties behind them they still just wanted to stand around and talk about every single move on the climb. They didn't climb much faster.



We ended up doing Concord tower while we waited then came back and went up Liberty Bell. The party was still nearing the summit. Hopefully all Washington climbers aren't that rude.



Overall however still a good experience thanks to the other politer, Washington climbers that showed up later.

Since last year's Silver Star climb have been intrigued by all the climbing possibilities in the WA pass area, so finally got to try something there. After a short night at the Blue Lake TH parking area, Jim and I headed to Liberty Bell. On the way up I ended up taking the wrong gully filled with sandy and loose stuff blocked by a nice! big rock. Climbing over this c..p warmed me up. There were only two guys from the town Mazama on the route and they knew their stuff and flew up the route. We leasurely climbed and enjoyed the route. The views from the top are awesome in every direction. The route was very enjoyable quite moderate and not exposed. Came down in three raps and quickly went back to car to go to our next goal NE ridge of Black Peak...

Climbed with hkutuk - very fun route! The second pitch was the most interesting, while the third pitch was much easier than we had expected. We only saw two other people on the route the whole day.

Climbed with Felix Danila on a cloudy and cold day (after climbing S Early Winter Spire the day before). With the Memorial Day weekend crowd gone, we were the only party climbing anywhere in the Liberty Bell group. Since we knew the approach from the day before, we made very good time to the snow couloir and found good snow conditions. Once on the route, I bypassed some ice in the initial chimney by climbing to the left (about 5.5). Felix led the Pitch 2 chimney and I had fun with the traverse below the roof on Pitch 3. Easy scrambling brought us to the summit. We found the rappel descent very easily. The descent down the snow couloir was the scariest part of the climb, but snow conditions were still good and it went uneventfully. We left Washington Pass feeling very lucky to have climbed two routes in non-ideal conditions.

Jeremy Person and I climbed the Bell and had a grand ol' time. We're the chuckleheads who left the pages from the Selected Climbs book in register...

Beautiful climb, with good solid rock. Only wish it was longer. Great views in all directions from the top.

With Phil Dyment, we traversed a snowfield to get to the rock and then being behind another party (imagine that...ha, ha.) we progressed slowly for several pitches. Still we finished in 10 hours and were back to the car just before dark. Surprisingly hard near the end as I recall. Very cool route, but the descent seemed to take forever on the trail.

The North Cascades are beautiful during this time. No crowds. No waiting. Just fantastic climbing. On the approach hike we stood in a heard of mountain goats. I had to chase one away since he was on the climbing route above me. We also saw ptarmigans. The weather was sunny and warm. What a wonderful view at the summit. I will do this again next year.

Third time's a charm they say. It was my third try and I finally made it.
