Second time to climb the Beckey Route. Great route and although a crowded route, both times I climbed it we didn't see a soul!

This was my introduction to alpine climbing. I was hooked! Beautiful views of the cascades from the summit!

Swapped leads with Steve on an almost perfect day - I led pitches 1 and 3, Steve led the rest. Started from trailhead around 10am, began roping up around noonish, up top by 2pm, spent about 30 minutes gawking at peaks, eating, etc. Back to cars by 4:30. Two rappels with a single 50m rope worked out just fine. Approach / descent gully very loose, but otherwise big fun !

(Fire in eastern WA seemed to be just behind Silver Star, etc)

Climbed the Beckey route with Rob Yang. Fun, easy route with awesome views of the N. Cascades the whole way. Smoke from the E. WA fires kind of messed with the photography options (there was a big blaze just behind the wine towers to the NE).

It rained all the way to the trailhead. We decided to head up anyway. The rock was wet, but at least we had the route to ourselves. It actually started to dry out near the top. After we had rapped down, the sun came out and the weather was very nice, making it a good hike out.

The Beckey route is always a pleasure. A great route for the first time alpine climber.

Beckey Route - 2X - 7/03 and 7/04. Fun easy route with a good combination of climbing styles.

Northwest Face (attempt) - 8/27/05 - Inspired by the "135 foot sustained 5.9 dihedral" mentioned in Selected Climbs, I tried this route Saturday. First pitch sucked, a low angle groove on uninspiring rock. The second pitch had a short fun 5.7 section with good exposure down the north face, then 4th class oatmeal and garbage rock. I got off route on the third pitch launching up a steep sustained 5.10B thin crack, placing a lot of gear. I tried to crank through a 25 foot runout on a sustained 5.10B flared groove, but whipped. Got lowered off a hex cursing the Beckey Topo, 5.8 my ass. Bailed. Checked out Selected Climbs topo later and determined the correct crack is 30 feet to the right of the one I tried. Oh well, it was a fun adventure.

Great climb! We were down before anyone else was even on route. Very suprising for a beautiful Saturday.

Snow in July? What started out as an impending non-summitt turned into a great sun-filled climb. Fairly easy three pitches, with a great view of folks climbing Concord and, of course, goats.

Fun route, good alternative to the slightly easier Beckey Route.

A super fun multi-pitch climb. Pretty busy on the route but everyone on our day was moving at the same speed. We even got to hand out with the mountain goats! Did in a day along with concord tower.

Nice consolation after getting stormed off of Forbidden Peak.

Excellent weather, great climbing, lots of fun. Most likely the best technical rock accent I have ever done next to "Outer Space" on Snow Creek Wall in Levenworth.

Did this climb in a mountaineering class I was taking at the time. First true rock climbing experience, I'd have to admit. Wonderful, though, because though it may seem easy to most, it taught me a lot about technique and about keeping calm. Gully leading up the start of the climb was a bit sketchy, hard snow (was hard to climb down more than climb up, however), and the first pitch was a bit shakey for me since I had never really climbed like that before. (I was learning, ok? Hehe!) However, the route got better as the pitches increased. Third pitch was the best. We went a route my dad had done years and years earlier with my mom - grreeaatt exposure. I had to jump practically from one rock to another with a gap that showed about 2500 ft. below me down to the N. Cascade Highway. It turned out that wasn't the actual route, but it was fun anyway to be able to face that exposure. Best part would have to be the couple sections of chimney climbing, I really enjoyed those, I seem to be better at that than face climbing. :) Made it to the top and clouds seriously parted just at the summit so I could get a 360 degree view of the North Cascade mountains. Life changing experience. I love it!

We got a casual morning start from camp at Lone Fir CG and reached the trailhead to find surprisingly few cars. We had all heard horror stories about traffic jams on our intended route, so we raced up the approach trail passing several parties. We arrived at the start of the route around 10:30 to find only a single 2-person party already starting up the route. No waiting for us! We quickly geared up and started the classic 400-foot Becky Route on the southwest flank of Liberty Bell as several other parties began to arrive and take their place in line. This route was also a mix of climbing and scrambling, but the climbing was harder, longer, and more interesting than what we found on SEWS. We all thoroughly enjoyed the entire route and reached the summit around 12:30.
