Concord Tower/North Face

Concord Tower via the North Face is a Grade II, 5.6 rock climb.


Drive SR 20 to the Blue Lakes Trailhead (5,200 ft), 1.5 mi west of Washington Pass.


Follow the Blue Lake Trail about 1.5 miles to a small meadow. Locate the climbers path left, just after a small stream. Follow path up through slabs, talus and meadow to below the gully descending from between Liberty Bell and Concord Tower.

The route begins at the top of the notch between Concord Tower and Liberty Bell. The climber's trail up the gully is usually snow filled and can be icy until late June. Rockfall is high after snow melt.
