Fairley8Fun Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2014


We hiked in and open bivouacked on a flat rock ledge about 2/3 of the way up from the road. Amazing sunset and stars in the night! Got up early and climbed in perfect conditions. Sunny and little to no wind. There were ridiculous goats harassing people as we went up and down. Summit views were great with mountains in every direction. Really fun route. Highly recommended!

Fun solo linkup with the Becky route on Liberty. Also have descended this numerous times as it's the standard descent.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 1986


Nobody except for goats (and us) here today! A bit loose in places, but overall a decent route. Down climbed our ascent route.

TimmyCPerfect weather  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2012


Bivied below; got up very early because the goats were curious about us, and with three wee babies in the herd, we didn't want any trouble from the mamas. Perfect weather, lots of sun but mild temps. We didn't see anyone else until the rap above the chimney. Nice!

Side note: the bolt in the middle of the Whale's back has returned; I wonder if it's a result of guide services taking big parties up there now?

SteveMarrFun intro to Washington Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2010


We opted for the South ArĂȘte when there were already three parties at the base of the Southwest Rib. We belayed the first pitch and the traverse farther up, and simuclimbed the rest. It took us about 2 1/2 hours to climb and rap the route.

AJonesMy first climb  Sucess!


in the Liberty Bell Group. Roped up for the first pitch and soloed the rest. Down soloed to the first pitch and then waited for about an hour for a spot to rapell.

kpthomsonLoved the Billy Goats  Sucess!


The Billy Goats followed us around, lapping up the salt from our urine. ON way to remeber the climb, which by the way, was more difficult down-climbing!
