North Face Directisomo shares the first pitch 5.6 of North Face route. So start at the Liberty Bell-Concord Notch... just a few feet short of Col. We found the start just a little uncertain because there is no worn rock from traffic like you find on Liberty Bell, so take someone who knows, bring guidebook or figure it out. Pitch 1 is easier than I thought it would be, good protection and short, about 60 feet to a large ledge system with small tree with slings. North Face and Directisomo share the next fifty feet or so as route moves right and up across ledge from tree belay. There is a very straight crack that goes up to skyline. It is impressive to me, fairly consistent in size taking good pro up to 4". We made it with one 3" cam, but a 4" would have been nice in addition to usual pro. Once you get to ridge at top of near vertical straight crack you can set up a good belay with one short slab to go to summit. At this belay... top of 2nd pitch, you are looking right over to south face of Concord and back across notch to Liberty Bell Rappel route. 3rd pitch has one small crack for pro on slab with runout to summit bolts/chains for rappel.
