The gully is a little chossy but not too bad. We had a family of goats follow us which was a little spooky as they were kicking rocks down the gully. They didn't bother our stuff though.
The route itself was amazing. I led the first and fourth pitches. The rock is solid and the views are picturesque. We encountered only one other team behind us the entire day. Can't wait to come back to climb more routes in the Liberty Bell Group.
A fun route. The gully has lots of loose rock.
good times with wife while kids in camp. 12 start from parking lot just to celebrate that we don't have to worry about lightning storms in WA. run to blue lake for a swim after getting down.
Nice dry and sunny day in mid-may. Approach gully was snow covered and the route itself was dry. Perfect mix of alpine snow and rock. Climbed with Josh Lewis
Second route of the day! Finished the last rappel in the dark. Second pitch was a good one
climbed with a party of 4 and got lost in the dark on the way down the climbers trail. Lack of carins made the descent very hard in the dark.
Great route. Followed this as part of an AAI course. Want to come back and spend some time climbing here.
Title says it all.
Awesome day in the mountains!
Climbed w/ Ryan and Chandler, they let me link up the first two pitches with a short 5.8ish variation between them and then Chandler led the next pitch and we soloed to the summit. Definitely the best easy alpine climb i've done.
Climbed this several times. Good place to introduce someone to alpine rock.
Did this route over 25 years ago - no crowds back then :-) Only one rap station back then and it took two 50m ropes. Great climb and I do remember all the goats!
There are some errors in the description. The lengths are all too short by ~40 feet. Also I found the hole near the boulder move on pitch four is a brownie sized 1.5 tri-cam. We free soloed that pitch on the way down to the rap chains, that slab feels like 5.3 going up if you are tall enough and 5.8 going down. Also be warned that wearing a pack on pitch two stinks.
Pretty cruiser route. Hit in on a weekday to hopefully avoid the crowds.
There were as many goats on the route as there were climbers!
Hoping to link all five in the group but got rained out :-(
I wish the route was longer...
Climbed the Becky Route after the SW Spire. A majestic place, cant imagine Becky hiking in way back when. Now we have to "highway".
Wandered up the wrong gully and soloed up Lexington to figure out where I was. Saw a party climbing something on the next peak that turned out to be the Beckey Route. Slogged down one gully and up another just as the other party was coming down. Took about 20 minutes to climb the route. First half was pretty good; second so-so but the views were great and it was nice to have the peak to myself.
Great day out. Had the route to ourselves until later in the day. Very friendly goats. Wish it had been longer. Easy for its grade. Getting back down the gully on the way out was harder! Nice destination when its wet on the coast.
