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.

Beckey Route. Beautiful views in a beautiful area with extremely easy climbing. No snow on approach.

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

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.

Lots of fun on good rock. Got a little stuck on the chimney move with my backpack. Got up it, but it wasn't pretty. The appraoch up the gully is far more treacherous than the climb.

Liberty Crack 7/7/07. Shirley & I climbed it in perfect weather. Nobody else (2 guys attempting but bailing from E. Face of Minuteman below) all day. Car to car with about ~11+ hrs. on route itself (yes, mostly dragging ass). Icy snow slope w/o ax or crampons was painful in the morning. Aid was mostly straightforward (though a KB on P1 is near popping). Found some of the free climbing (esp. up high) hard (& not too aesthetic IMHO) esp. compared to other comarably rated pitches we did in WA Pass (probably tad off route & as always, I SUCK). Eaten alive on the hike down by mosquitos!! Friday night departure from PDX & early Sunday morning return - not a bad way of spending a long Saturday.

Beckey Route September 21, 2002. Perfect weather. Crowded. Both my wife and I thought that the 2nd pitch chimney was the most interesting part of the climb (not pitch 3). The exposure on pitch 3 seemed to be exaggerated in the descriptions I read before starting out. Actually did not even notice the finger traverse (then again, I'm 6'7"). Actually, the exposure on the whole climb was pretty much limited to seeing the large belay platform below you - i.e. almost nowhere did one get to see 'all the way down'. Did single rope rappels on the way down to avoid getting ropes stuck. Early Winter Spires look like very cool climbs - something on the to do list.

Very fun climb following an outstanding lead. Terrific rappel. Great camp memories of a raging fire, evil dog, and lunatic wood gatherer.

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!
